A button battery in the nose of children is an unusual foreign body, which can cause liquefaction necrosis with subsequent severe local tissue destruction. All button batteries as foreign bodies in the nasal cavity should be removed immediately to prevent severe local tissue damage, resulting in late sequelae, such as septal perforation or stenosis of the nasal meatus. We present two cases of nasal septal perforation followed by button battery foreign body and discuss the special aspects of this foreign body.
Key Words: Nasal septal perforation;Button battery
