The patient, who was kept in the intensive care unit for recovery, said that he started to eat metal objects about six months ago.


Doctors believe the patient may have a habit of repeatedly and persistently eating non-food items known as Pica Syndrome.

The habit of eating objects such as soil, clay, chalk, coal is called pica syndrome in medicine. Although its name is not known among the public, people tend to eat these substances due to reasons such as iron, zinc and calcium deficiency. However, according to experts, this situation does not eliminate the deficiency of any mineral and can cause problems such as constipation, intestinal parasites and mercury poisoning.
