Foreign bodies in the digestive tract are a common cause of patients presenting to emergency departments. A 3-year-old boy who had accidentally swallowed magnetic beads while playing was admitted to the hospital. After failed endoscopic removal, he underwent laparoscopic removal. We found that the stomach and jejunum were tightly bound together by the magnetic beads, and this had caused perforations. The perforations had then connected to form a tract resulting in a spontaneous gastrojejunostomy. During the operation, four magnetic beads were removed from the stomach and eight from the jejunum.
