The clinical and roentgenographic findings in five patients with small intestinal obstruction caused by food impaction are presented. None had undergone previous gastric surgery. While the clinical features are those of small intestinal obstruction, an upper gastrointestinal study may demonstrate the exact site and nature of the obstruction.
