Title:
Intranasal Septal Perforation in a 4-Year-Old by an Impacted Button Battery: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
Authors:
Mattingly, Diana; Crews, Lindsay K; Florentino-Pineda, Ivan
Abstract:
While intranasal foreign bodies account for less than 1% of pediatric emergency room visits, proper diagnosis and management is critical to minimize significant morbidity and mortality. Intranasal button batteries in particular pose a significant threat to the pediatric population as nasal mucosal necrosis, septal perforation, facial cellulitis, and lateral nasal wall necrosis can occur within hours of insertion. The incidence of impacted button batteries has risen with the increased prevalence in common electronics like hearing aids, watches, and musical greeting cards. One study estimated that button batteries comprised 7% of intranasal foreign bodies removed from pediatric patients in a 6-month period. We report a case of intranasal button battery impaction in a 4-year-old male that resulted in significant tissue injury and required general anesthesia for extraction.
