We experienced a case of an 18-year-old woman who ingested salt-fermented northern sand lance and developed corrosive gastritis. The patient underwent a esophagogastroscopy and had developed a deep ulceration in the antrum. This cases shows that salt-fermented northern sand lance, which is very acidic and includes various biogenic amines, has the possibility of inducing a corrosive injury to the stomach.
Key Words: Salt-fermented Northern Sand Lance, Biogenic Amine, Corrosive Gastritis
