Case presentation: We discuss our findings in an infant who presented with severe respiratory compromise where incidental intra-operative findings revealed CTS with no cardiopulmonary abnormalities. Because of a lack of resources in the emergency department, we created a tracheostoma and inserted an endotracheal tube.
Conclusion: The main aim in treating CTS is to secure the airway and provide sufficient oxygen.
Case presentation: An 8-month old boy presented with vomiting and was referred to the otorhinolaryngology team based on his mother's suspicion that her child might have ingested a foreign body. Flexible laryngoscopy revealed a phone screen protector at the vallecular region. The foreign body was removed in the operating theatre.
Conclusion: Foreign body ingestion should always be suspected in young patients. Consideration of the patient's symptoms, level of lodgement, and type of foreign body will determine whether immediate intervention or a conservative approach is warranted.
