Woman had 55 batteries in her bum and stomach – doctors say it’s ‘most ever’

During a hospital visit, one woman was found to have dozens of batteries up her bum and in her stomach.

Medical staff at St. Vincent’s University Hospital in Dublin revealed that the 66-year-old patient had a total of 55 batteries in her body.

They were discovered after an X-ray identified foreign objects in her body.

Luckily none were obstructing her gastrointestinal tract so doctors hoped she would pass them naturally, reports Live Science.

According to the report in the Irish Medical Journal, the woman managed to deposit five AA’s in the first week – but the rest were stuck.

When she started to experience stomach cramps, doctors realised her distended stomach was hanging above the pubic bone due to the weight of the batteries.

Surgeons took action and removed 46 of the remaining batteries – leaving four still trapped in her colon.

The Huffington Post reported that doctors “milked” them into her rectum to remove them from her anus.

This brought the total amount of batteries she ingested to 55 AA and AAA batteries.

“To the best of our knowledge, this case represents the highest reported number of batteries ingested at a single point in time,” the journal article said.

While the incident certainly inspired curious bafflement, the report reminded readers that the ingestion of batteries is a serious, albeit “unusual,” method of self-harm.

Its authors noted that the act can cause severe issues, including “mucosal injury, perforation, [and] obstruction.”

“The potential of cylindrical batteries to result in acute surgical emergencies should not be underestimated,” the report stated.
