Caustic agents stored in ordinary containers can be ingested by children. These materials should be stored in soft distinctive bottles and in safe places. The probability of ingestion of a caustic agent is low in the newborn period, and caustic burns have been reported infrequently. In this case study, a newborn baby with severe respiratory insufficiency after ingestion of benzalkonium chloride is reported.
