In this case report, it was suspected that a four-year-old girl had an impacted toy in her nose. Initially, she was refused consultation due to a COVID-19 positive parent. Three days later she presented with nasal secretion and facial oedema. At the hospital, an examination revealed an impacted battery and consequent necrosis of nasal structures. The battery was removed in general anesthesia. Afterwards, the girl made fine recovery but developed a permanent septal perforation. Frequent alterations in COVID-19 guidelines challenge doctors to distinguish conditions crucial for evaluation. Batteries are uncommon for nasal impaction but may lead to severe morbidity if left undiscovered.
