Özet

Esophageal impacting of button batteries must be distinguished from impacting of other foreign bodies because of their severe complications. We present a 2.5-year-old girl who had an acquired tracheo-esophageal fistula (TEF) caused by a calculator battery lodged in her esophagus. We also review the literature and assess the applicability of multislice CT and its possible advantages in children with acquired TEF.
