Airway obstruction developed in an infant who sustained thermal burns to the oropharynx and trachea after he aspirated microwave-heated tea. Bronchoscopic examination revealed upper and lower airway hyperemia, edema and blister formation. Physicians should be aware of this potential hazard of microwave-heated fluid. Early assessment and stabilization of the airway is important following scald injuries to the face and oropharynx.
