Mentions: A 56-year-old woman presented with epigastric pain for 5 days after eating fish. She had no history of any disease or medication. Her vital signs were normal. On examination, the epigastric region was tender. No abnormalities were found in the laboratory tests. Abdominal ultrasonography was normal. Endoscopy showed a fishbone stuck in second part of the duodenum (Figure 1). The oesophagus and stomach were unremarkable. Approximately 2 cm in length, the fishbone was removed using standard grasping forceps. The patient's pain dramatically improved immediately after removing the fishbone and she was stable in follow up.
