Foreign body ingestion in neonatal period is an uncommon occurrence, despite foreign ingestion being common among pediatric age group. We report a rare case of foreign body esophagus in a 12-day-old female neonate causing obstructive symptoms after a homicidal attempt. The unusual age and circumstances involving the ingestion of the foreign body prompted us to report this case.
