We are concerned that the actions of the mythical character at the root of this report must be brought to the attention of the medical community, as it seems to represent the first signs of a worrying new trend in malpractice. Previous anecdotal evidence suggests the tooth fairy is benevolent, but this opinion may need revising in light of mounting reports of less child-friendly activity.
As far as we are aware, there is no revalidation procedure for the tooth fairy and no clear guidance or standard operating procedures in place to ensure adverse outcomes are avoided. We advise that medical practitioners should have a high index of suspicion with tooth related presenting complaints.
What is going on here? This piece puts it into layman’s language. We are shocked!
[…]an 8-year-old boy who was sent to an allergist because of his epic runny nose. Regular old medical treatment didn’t work, so the next step was a CT scan. The scan showed signs of inflammation in the sinuses. But it also revealed something more surprising: a tooth in his left ear canal. It turned out that 3 years before, the boy had woken up “extremely distressed” because the tooth fairy had taken the tooth from under his pillow and jammed it in his ear.
