Multiple Foreign Bodies in GIT in a Child Managed by Conservative Approach
A seven years old child presented with multiple pebble stones in the gastro intestinal tract. Clinical examination did not reveal any abnormality except mild dehydration. Serial clinical examination for period of three days and regular radiographic follow up was done. Spontaneous expulsion of all the pebbles per rectum without any complication occurred in three days. In the absence of emergency surgical situation observation and watchful follow up of the patients will suffice the management.
