Abstract

Button battery ingestion is associated with many complications. We are presenting a case of an infant presented in a state of respiratory difficulty and dysphagia having history of button battery ingestion. Removal at first attempt with conventional oesophagoscope was unsuccessful due to the sharp edges of the buttery getting stuck in the surrounding mucosa. The tele-endoscope guided removal at second attempt was successful preventing the need for pharyngotomy. Present case provides us a latest technologically advanced tool which can help us remove an entangled button battery from upper aero digestive tract preventing complications hitherto unreported in world medical literature.
