A 56-year-old woman presented with epigastric pain for 5 days after eating fish. She had no history of any disease or medication. Her vital signs were normal. On examination, the epigastric region was tender. No ab- normalities were found in the laboratory tests. Abdom- inal ultrasonography was normal. Endoscopy showed a fishbone stuck in second part of the duodenum (Fig- ure 1). The oesophagus and stomach were unremark-

able. Approximately 2 cm in length, the fishbone was removed using standard grasping forceps. The patient’s pain dramatically improved immediately after removing the fishbone and she was stable in follow up.

Fishbones are the most often ingested foreign bod- ies that become impacted in the upper gastrointestinal tract. Most foreign bodies generally pass spontaneously through the gastrointestinal tract. However, A minority of patients require endoscopic removal and surgical in- tervention [1, 2]. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of a stuck fishbone successfully removed from the duodenum with dramatic improve- ment immediately afterwards.
