A 22-year-old man was admitted with abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting secondary to ingestion of multiple foreign bodies. He was found to be in increasing distress with an increase in abdominal pain and distention and no passage of foreign bodies. Patient underwent a laparotomy. Foreign bodies removed from perforated distal ileum included 8 big size (10 cm) plastic clothes pegs, a 10 cm pencil, couple of stones, a 10 cm wood nail, nail scissors and a small size battery. In case of foreign body ingestion, especially in mentally-ill patients, the patient should be carefully examined because of the potential risk of obstruction and bowel perforation, more so, if the foreign body is a battery which can puncture causing corrosive injury as well.
