Abstract

The ingestion of toxic substances is a common pediatric emergency. Activated charcoal is part of the standard treatment for most toxic ingestions and is considered a benign therapy. We report a case of inadvertent administration of activated charcoal into the trachea that resulted in the development of chronic lung disease.
