Özet

Foreign body ingestion is a common problem in children. The most commonly ingested objects are coins, toy parts, bones, pins, and disc batteries. The radiolucency of the pull-tabs or stay-tabs of Cola cans constitutes another difficulty. In cases with ingested Cola can stay-tabs, as was in our patient, diagnosis should be confirmed at least by oesophagogram to avoid potential complications. (Hong Kong j.emerg.med. 2009;16:265-266)
