Small bowel obstruction due to phytobezoar: CT diagnosis.
Abdom Imaging. 1997 Sep-Oct; 22(5):471-3.AI

Abstract

We report two cases of small bowel obstruction (SBO) due to phytobezoar impaction. In both cases, computed tomography (CT) demonstrated a well-defined, ovoid intraluminal mass with mottled gas pattern within the dilated small bowel at the site of obstruction and an abruptly collapsed lumen beyond the lesion. Recognition of these CT findings allows specific preoperative diagnosis of SBO owing to this uncommon lesion.
