A case of a paraffin oil bezoar impacted in the small bowel, resulting from the prolonged use of paraffin oil as treatment for increasing constipation in a patient with metastatic ovarian carcinoma, is described. Although pharmacobezoars are reported in the literature, we could not find a description of the CT findings of a paraffin oil bezoar.
