Ingestion of corrosive substances can produce severe injury to the gastrointestinal tract and can even result in death. The degree of damage depends on the type of the substance, morphologic form of the agent, and the quantity ingested. Long term complications include stricture formation, antral stenosis, gastric ulcers and the development of esophageal carcinoma. Three cases of corrosive poisoning diagnosed on the basis of barium studies and subsequent correlation with history of accidental corrosive intake in two and suicidal intake in one case are reported in this communication. The literature on the subject is scanty and hence the report.
