Fecaloma is a mass of feces accumulated that is much harder in consistency than a fecal impaction. We present the case of a 11-year-old boy who developed a fecaloma associated with chronic constipation arrived at Hospital Santobono-Pausilipon in Naples which was managed conservatively.


KEY WORDS: Fecal impaction; Tomography, X-ray computed; Ultrasonography
