ABSTRACT
The diagnosis of unsuspected foreign body ingestion is a common problem in children. We describe a toddler who presented with persistent vomiting and dehydration. A plain radiograph of the abdomen did not reveal a foreign body. However, abdominal ultrasonography promptly identified a funnel-shaped foreign body obstructing the gastric outlet. This was extracted by upper endoscopy. A recent review of the literature shows increasing evidence that abdominal ultrasonography is an equally complementary diagnostic modality for ingested foreign bodies in children.

No MeSH data available.

Abdominal sonogram demonstrated the presence of a small echogenic structure casting an acoustic shadow localized to the region of the pylorus. The structure appeared to be creating a gastric outlet obstruction as evidenced by a massively distended fluid filled stomach.

Figure 2: Abdominal sonogram demonstrated the presence of a small echogenic structure casting an acoustic shadow localized to the region of the pylorus. The structure appeared to be creating a gastric outlet obstruction as evidenced by a massively distended fluid filled stomach.

Mentions: An abdominal ultrasound done showed a small echogenic structure localized to the region of the pyloris. The structure was obstructing the gastric outlet (Figure 2) as evidenced by a distended fluid filled stomach.
