Abstract

Repeated ingestion of small objects has been previously reported in the psychiatric literature. We recently had a patient with repeated intentional foreign body ingestion syndrome who developed complete airway obstruction and eardiae arrest after ingesting a computer mouse tracking ball. We use our ease to suggest a pathway that ean be used for similar emergent airway problems.
