Some Interesting and Rare Presentation of Common Foreign Bodies in Otorhinolaryngology: A Case Series
Dr Seema Monga | Dr Arun Parkash Sharma | Dr Deepti Agarwal
Abstract: Foreign body cases are commonly encountered in ENT emergencies. They are often associated with high morbidity or mortality when not managed timely. Accidental ingestion or aspiration of foreign bodies is commonly seen in both children and elderly. They either get lodged in cricopharynx, or get impacted in the oesophagus because it has weak peristalsis and multiple anatomical narrowings. Foreign bodies can cause mucosal damage, perforation, sepsis, or even death. We are reporting three unusual foreign body cases seen in our department which were successfully managed by us.
