DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.577

ABSTRACT

This report aims to discuss the occurrence and differential diagnosis in hard palate foreign bodies, in infants. We present the case of a 16- month-old girl who was found to have plastic part of a toy embedded in the hard palate as foreign body. The foreign body was extracted with care to avoid aspiration. The possibilities of misdiagnosis and airway aspiration were discussed. Great care was focused on prevention of airway aspiration.
