The study was retrospective from January 2007 to October 2017 in the endoscopic center of the service of gastroenterology of University hospital center Gabriel Touré and concerned the patients who have been addressed at this center for foreign bodies. We collated 44 patients who ingested foreign bodies among 2750 digestive endoscopies, that is to say, a frequency of 0.16%. In patient’s history, we found caustic obstruction in 2.3% of patients. The foreign body ingestion was accidental in 97.7% of cases. Pieces of money were more frequent (54.4%). In 86.4%, the foreign bodies were into the esophagus. Upper digestive endoscopy performed foreign bodies extraction in 88.6 of cases. In 9.1%, the elimination was spontaneous on 72 hours. Surgeon was indicated in 2.3% of patients.
