Caustic ingestion is a major health concern in both developed and developing countries, that may lead to serious esophageal injury. The clinical presentation of caustic ingestion in children vary from asymptomatic to serious and fatal sequelae, such as perforation and stricture formation.

Esophageal injuries were detected in both acid and alkali ingestion, but gastric injuries was significantly more in acid ingestion. During follow up period, 20 of all cases developed esophageal stricture. CONCLUSION: Dysphagia, oral lesions, vomiting, and drooling were the most common findings.Esophageal stricture was found in 20 of cases during 3 months of follow up.
