KAMI saw this story on Wereblog, wherein a 43-year-old woman apparently suffered abdominal pain for the past 10 days.

She was vomiting from her sickness and when doctors came to check on her condition, they were surprised to see such objects.

Aside from nails, there were also pens, spoon, pieces of wood, hair, metal chains and even a toothbrush inside her stomach.

The items found within her can be collectively called as metal bezoar.

According to a medical dictionary, bezoar describes a mass formed in the stomach by compaction of ingested material taht does not pass into the intestine.

The woman reportedly has a psychiatric disorder, which led her to ingest these things.
