Abstract

A 16 years old female with history of cerebral palsy, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and severe scoliosis presents for recurrent pneumonia. Multiple prior plain films demonstrate progressive increased consolidation confined to the left lower lobe. Subsequently, a CT of the chest was preformed which showed a plastic gastrostomy (MIC-Key tube) bumper in the proximal esophagus causing severe tracheal narrowing. The patient underwent endoscopic removal of the gastrostomy bumper without incident.
