The intake of foreign bodies is a common clinical entity in Gastroenterology, most of them are expelled spontaneously, but those that are long and sharp may cause complications in 1 to 5%, therefore requiring endoscopic extraction or surgical treatment sometimes. We report the case of a patient with a history of bulimia that came to the Guillermo Almenara Hospital for symptoms of acute abdominal pain due to gastric perforation by foreign body after many years there has been the intake and whose resolution was surgery.
