INTRODUCTION: Squamous cell carcinoma arising from caustic ingestion in the esophagus in young age of very short duration is not reported in literature.
CASE REPORT: We present the world's first reported case from India of a 14-year-old boy with an associated 1-year history of accidental caustic ingestion who developed esophageal squamous cell carcinoma along with cervical lymph node metastasis, after a thorough review of available literature.
DISCUSSION: Accidental caustic ingestion may have an unusual presentation and severe complications, but a favorable outcome. Guidance and education are important preventive tools, but the best approach is to restrict access to caustic agents by prohibiting their free commercialization.
