Ingestion of foreign bodies is a common clinical scenario in any emergency department. Presence of thousands ingested foreign bodies inside stomach is a rare scene. However, only a few such cases have been reported. Here we present a case of young adult man with known psychiatric disorder, having 2562 nails in his stomach leading to gastric outlet obstruction. Gastrotomy was employed to relieve the stomach of this mine of nails. Later psychiatric care was also provided.
