Abstract

Background: Foreign body removal in children is very common in the daily routine of an otolaryngologist but reports of oronasal foreign bodies and their management are rare. Method: The case note of a 5 year old female child presenting with an oronasal foreign body following a domestic accident was retrieved and studied and followed up. Result: a 5 year old female child with an oronasal foreign body which created an oronasal fistula that was closed with local palatal mucoperiosteal-lined flaps. The patient defaulted following treatment, a common practice by patients in our society. Conclusion: This report highlights the occurrence of this rare condition, its management and the need to put measures in place to prevent domestic accidents especially for those most at risk. Keywords: Oronasal, Foreign body, Fistula, Domestic accident.Nigerian Journal of Medicine Vol. 17 (4) 2008: pp. 459-461
