ND7Z/T15-T19 Effects of foreign body entering through natural orifice, unspecified



A foreign body entering through a natural orifice, such as the mouth, nose, rectum, vagina, or urethra, is a common cause of this condition. In most cases, the foreign body is accidentally ingested or inserted.


Diagnosis is usually made on the basis of the patient’s history and physical examination. In some cases, imaging studies such as X-ray or endoscopy may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis.

Differential diagnosis

Differential diagnosis may include infection or inflammation, obstruction of a hollow organ or structure, and trauma.


Treatment is usually removal of the foreign body, which may require endoscopy, surgery, or other procedures.


Prognosis is generally good, although there is a risk of complications such as infection or damage to the organs or tissues.
