Gastric stricture is caused by the ingestion of caustic materials, or by the involvement of a gastric infiltrating carcinoma. Corrosive injury-induced stricture is uncommon and the gastric injury caused by calcium fertilizer has not been reported in Korea. Once the diagnosis of gastric stricture is confirmed, an early definitive surgical intervention should be performed. Sometimes balloon dilatation on stricture may be attempted in suitable cases. We report a case of gastric stricture caused by ingestion of chemical fertilizer containing calcium and managed with radiologic balloon dilatation in a 73-year-old man.
