A case report in the latest issue of the Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association describes a 7-month-old boy who was admitted to hospital after problems with drooling, vomiting of any non-mashed food and laboured breathing. Thoracic CT revealed a star-shaped foreign body stuck in the esophageal wall (above). The foreign body was removed endoscopically and turned out to be an 18 mm large plastic star from a christmas decoration.

And with that story The Sterile Eye wish all readers and friends a merry christmas and a happy new year!
