Case Reports: Case Report

One day after removal of an AuraStraight disposable laryngeal mask, a plastic laryngeal mask airway cuff shield was retrieved from the oropharynx of a 5-year-old child refusing to eat, drooling, and pointing to her throat. We discuss the reasons why this occurred and suggest how it can be prevented in the future.
