Medical Mystery Determined to Be Lego Up Child’s Nose

The cause of chronic sinus problems that a 6-year-old Utah boy has been suffering for 3 years has finally been identified to both the relief and surprise of his family and doctors:  Isaak Lasson had a flexible Lego wheel jammed up his nose.  MSNBC.com has more:

Despite numerous trips to the doctor, no one knew what was making it so hard for the poor kid to breathe. Over the years, Isaak was prescribed multiple rounds of antibiotics.

Then, in late July, one doctor took a good look and noticed something in that little nostril that didn’t belong. When the doctor asked him what it could be, KSL reported, Isaak said, “I put some spaghetti up there, but that was a long time ago.” A trip to a specialist finally revealed the culprit – a fairly large Lego piece wrapped in a wad of fungus. Yum.

Luckily, now that his airways are free and clear, Isaak’s not only breathing better, he’s also sleeping and eating better and has more energy. His parents feel bad about the whole thing — but how could they have known?

“I asked him, ‘Dude, how did that even get in there?’” Craig Lasson, Isaak’s dad, told the news station. “We think he bent it in half — it’s pretty flexible — and that it opened up once it got into his sinuses.”

    “In the nation-wide study, which included over 53,000 participants, researchers found 20% fewer lung cancer deaths among those who were screened with low-dose helical CT (also known as spiral CT) compared with those who were screened with chest X-rays.”Great news!

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
