Abstract

Nasal cavity foreign bodies are common accidents in children, especially between the newly born and four years of age, and sometimes lead to complications such as epistaxis, vestibulitis, sinusitis bronchoaspiration and nasal septal damage etc. Diagnosis is often made with anterior rhinoscopy, but sometimes nasal fibroendoscopy and imaging may be useful. If the diagnosis is confirmed, prompt foreign body removal should be done to avoid complications. We have recently experienced a case of nasal septal perforation secondary to magnetic nasal foreign bodies attracting each other across the nasal septum. After the removal of foreign bodies, the nasal septal perforation was repaired with acellular human dermal allograft.
