Abstract

The wide use of caustic compounds is responsible for an increase in gastric lesions, a severe condition with acute mortality and long-term morbidity, secondary to accidental or voluntary ingestion. A careful evaluation of patients with such lesions is mandatory for proper treatment planning. Ultrasonography may play an important role in providing complementary information on the integrity of the gastric wall and the possible presence of pathognomonic signs.
