Swallowed foreign bodies in children: report of four unusual cases

, : Swallowed foreign bodies in children: report of four unusual cases. Annals of the Academy of Medicine, Singapore 35(1): 49-53

Introduction: Although a majority of ingested foreign bodies (FBs) pass down the gastrointestinal tract spontaneously, those that are sharp, pointed or large in size need removal to avert serious complications. We highlight the urgent need and utility of endoscopic accessories and technical artistry in safe retrieval of FBs in children. Clinical Picture: Four children had accidentally swallowed a nail, metallic dumbbell, open safety pin and a cushion pin respectively.
