Abstract

Foreign body ingestion is a common occurrence in children and in specific high-risk  groups. It is usually diagnosed based on a history of ingestion given by the patient  or an observer. However, children and mentally retarded adults may be unable to  give an accurate history, and a high index of suspicion must be maintained in these  groups. We report a rare case of foreign body stone in an mentally retarded adult  which presented with drooling and impaired feeds, thence enabling for high index  for suspicion.
