Abstract Two cases of small bowel obstruction secondary to phytobezoar diagnosed by computed tomography (CT) and confirmed at surgery are presented. CT findings were dilated intestinal loops and an intraluminal mass with air bubbles retained in its interstices, resulting in a mottled appearance. We propose that definite diagnosis of small bowel bezoar can be made on the basis of these CT findings.
