Özet

Pica is defined as the compulsive eating of anything and has been known for more than a hundred years. It is a worldwide problem which can be seen in every race, age, sex and geographic region. Its true incidence is not known and may be greater than expected. Although it is a widespread phenomenon, the causes and risk factors of pica are not well established. Clinical signs and symptoms of pica syndrome are numerous but liver disorder associated with this syndrome is not widely reported. We reported here liver disorder possibly related with pica.
