The article presents the case study of a 16-year-old boy with a long history of self harm was admitted for the third time in four weeks with a history of ingestion of a number of shaving blades. On previous occasions, endoscopic intervention with the use of an overtube under general anaesthesia had been successful in their safe retrieval. However, on the third occasion, a delay to endoscopy of 36 hours due to a combination of late presentation and lack of access to the operating theatre allowed the blades to progress beyond the pylorus into the small bowel, beyond the reach of a standard upper gastrointestinal endoscope.
