Bezoars are the rarest causes of upper abdominal masses and upper gastric outlet obstruction in children and are most commonly seen in females of adolescent age. They can present with the common symptoms of abdominal mass or abdominal pain but may lead to serious complications as well. They must be diagnosed and managed early despite their rarity so as to prevent complications like obstruction, perforation and bleeding. This article is reporting our 25 years experience with abdominal bezoars with variable presentation in our tertiary care centre.
