Esophageal Foreign Body Symptoms





Category: FOREIGN BODIES IN THE AIR AND FOOD PASSAGES
Source: A Manual Of Peroral Endoscopy And Laryngeal Surgery

1. There are no absolutely diagnostic symptoms.
2. Dysphagia, however, is the most constant complaint, varying with
the size of the foreign body, and the degree of inflammatory or
spasmodic reaction produced.
3. Pain may be caused by penetration of a sharp foreign body, by
inflammation secondary thereto, by impaction of a large object, or by
spasmodic closure of the hiatus esophageus.
4. The subjective sensation of foreign body is usually present, but
cannot be relied upon as assuring the presence of a foreign body for
this sensation often remains for a time after the passage onward of
the intruder.
5. All of these symptoms may exist, often in the most intense
degree, as the result of previous violent attempts at removal; and the
foreign body may or may not be present.
