Abstract

Endoscopic intervention is a very important and effective tool for evaluating and treating an esophageal foreign body. The size of a cystic foreign body filled with liquid can be reduced by needle puncture and fluid spillage. We report a rare case of an acute total obstruction of the esophagus by an ingested canine gallbladder that was removed by endoscopic intervention.
