Foreign body ingestion is common in children, but magnet ingestion is rare. Ingestion of one magnet does not creat a serious problem; however, ingesting multiple magnet can lead to hazardous complications such as pressure necrosis, intestinal perforation, fistula formation, obstruction and intestinal volvulus. Most cases with complications after multiple magnet ingestion require surgical intervention. We report a case of a fistula following the ingestion of seven small, flat and round magnets that were removed successfully by endoscopic submucosal dissection without surgery.
