Banana

Case contributed by Dr Yi-Jin Kuok

Presentation

Failure to thrive in a cold climate and pseudojaundice.

MRI

Note the three cutaneous clefts on the axial images (black) which allow for easy peeling.

The lack of internal bruising indicates that the banana was likely purchased from a reputable green grocer.

Case Discussion

It is important to familiarise oneself the MRI appearances of a banana, wherever it may be located, due to its potential for abuse as a foreign body.
