Bezoars are the most common foreign bodies in the stomach as seen endoscopically with a frequency of approximately 0.4%. They consist of persistent concretions or hard accumulations of non-digestible vegetable matter, hair or more unusual materials. Gastric bezoars develop in patients with previous gastric surgery, gastric outlet obstruction, or poor gastric emptying such as gastroparesis due to hypothyroidism, diabetes mellitus or mixed connective tissue disease. The clinical presentations of gastric bezoars include epigastric pain, a palpable mass, a gastrointestinal obstruction and peptic ulceration. The treatment options include surgery, enzymatic dissolution or endoscopic mechanical fragmentation and/or removal. Recently, the efficacy of the administration or lavage of 'Coca-Cola' for the effective dissolution of gastric bezoars has been reported. We report a case of a 27-year-old woman with a large gastric bezoar that was successfully removed by the direct endoscopic injection of a carbonated beverage ('Coca-Cola light', a sugar free product; Coca cola Co., Seoul, South Korea) into the bezoar, which led to fragmentation.
