Bezoars are concretions of foreign matter in the gastrointestinal tract which may cause nonspecific symptoms, including epigastric discomfort, early satiety, and constipation, and rarely gastrointestinal obstruction. We report a case in which the migration of bezoars led to secondary gastrointestinal obstruction. With endoscopy manipulation and chemical dissolution, such as with Coca-Cola, to disintegrate the gastric bezoars, the possibility that fragmented residuals may coalesce in the small intestine causing ileus should be considered when a patient presents with abdominal obstruction symptoms after these procedures. In this condition, abdominal plain film X-ray and computer tomography play important roles in timely diagnosis. © 2011 The Japanese Society of Internal Medicine.
