Airway burns and atelectasis in an adolescent following aspiration of molten wax

, : Airway burns and atelectasis in an adolescent following aspiration of molten wax. Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology 109(7): 687-689

Scald injuries caused by hot liquids are not a frequently reported cause of pediatric respiratory and alimentary tract burns. Aspiration of molten wax with subsequent pharyngeal or laryngeal burns has not been described at all, to the best of our knowledge. A case of an adolescent who presented with airway burns and atelectasis subsequent to aspiration of molten wax is herein described and discussed.
