Abstract


Bezoar, an illness known for a long time is nowadays the subject of renewed interest. This is due to the fact that it may occur as a complication of the gastric operations now used with increasing frequency. A case of phytobezoar after vagotomy and pyloroplasty for peptic ulcer is reported. The patient recovered with normal medical treatment. Codifying the etiology, pathogeny and treatment has been attempted; three principal conclusions seem to appear: - The main role of the vagotomy in the genesis of the disease. - The most valuable aids in diagnosis are X -Ray examination and sometimes gastroscopy. - The rlative ease and efficacity ofmedical therapy.
