Correspondence:  Hyun Joo Song,
Phytobezoars are conglomerates of non-digestible vegetable matter in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract that may be insidious or symptomatic with general GI manifestations. One of the predisposing factors of phytobezoars is gastric surgery. They can develop at any site of the gastrointestinal tract; however, duodenal phytobezoar following gastric surgery has been rarely reported. Small intestinal bezoars often cause small bowel obstruction and ileus. We report a case of recurrent duodenal stricture and phytobezoar which was detected following Billroth I operation for early gastric cancer.
Key Words: Billroth I; Early Gastric Cancer; Phytobezoar
