A foreign body is any object that originates outside the body's organism. Most references to foreign bodies involve propulsion through natural openings into hollow organs. Foreign bodies can be inert or irritating. If they irritate, they will cause inflammation and ring scar. They can introduce infections into the body or get infectious agents and protect them from the body's immune defenses. They can obstruct passages by their size or the scarring they cause. Some can be toxic or produce toxic chemicals from reactions with chemicals produced by the body, as is the case with many examples of ingested metal objects.
