A 73 year old man presented to his primary care physician with sudden onset dysphagia to solids and liquids. He urgently completed a barium swallow study showing what was believed to be a coin. Endoscopic removal subsequently revealed it was a lithium battery. Consequences and management of lithium battery ingestion are discussed.Keywords: dysphagia; lithium; battery(Published: 29 September 2014)Citation: Journal of Community Hospital Internal Medicine Perspectives 2014, 4: 25156 - http://dx.doi.org/10.3402/jchimp.v4.25156
