Chest and abdominal x-rays demonstrate the outline of a plastic toothbrush within the stomach. The bristles are radio-opaque. No pneumomediastinum, pneumoperitoneum or halitosis identified.
All the request card says is "swallowed tooshbrush today", leaving us to fill in the back-story. Personally I am struggling to come up with a reasonable scenario...
