Abstract

A white 65-yr-old male who presented with epigastric pain and early satiety had a gastric bezoar composed of multiple lupini beans. Surgical removal was required due to the hard consistency of the mass. Gastric lupinomas has become a serious clinical problem, since lupini beans are currently used by unorthodox healers as an alleged treatment for arthritic pain.
