Multiple uniform tubular structures in stomach containing fluid with hiperdense borders.
The appearance was odd for any foreign body, so the woman was carefully interrogated about her last meal, which was before the study and it consisted in a plate of "penne", a tubular shape pasta as an incidental finding.
This finding may mimic among others: pills ingestion, wrapped contraband, or any wood material ingestion.
The real cause of the abdominal pain remains uncertain.
