Agarwal A, Singh DK - J Anaesthesiol Clin Pharmacol (2014)

Bottom Line: Corrosive acid poisoning commonly results in chemical injuries to respiratory and upper gastrointestinal tract.Corrosive mucosal erosion of the larynx and trachea may occur if the patient aspirates acid.We successfully used local anti-inflammatory action of dexamethasone instilled through a fiber-optic bronchoscope for regression of mucosal edema and prevention of subsequent development of stricture in a young female.

Corrosive acid poisoning commonly results in chemical injuries to respiratory and upper gastrointestinal tract. Corrosive mucosal erosion of the larynx and trachea may occur if the patient aspirates acid. We successfully used local anti-inflammatory action of dexamethasone instilled through a fiber-optic bronchoscope for regression of mucosal edema and prevention of subsequent development of stricture in a young female.
