If you ever have to visit the emergency room in the Janeway, you might get to view a framed collection of items that doctors have pulled out of children's noses, ears, throats and other spots.

In this era of allergies and asthma, a constant  runny nose, trouble breathing and blocked sinuses might be treated with antibiotics. So thought doctors treating six-year-old Isaak Lasson, who has been dealing with sinus problems for the past three years.

Turns out the lad had a foreign object in his nose, a LEGO part. A specialist  pulled a ball of fungus out of his nose, and inside was a LEGO tire!

Isaak’s father told reporters: “We think he bent it in half — it’s pretty flexible — and that it opened up once it got into his sinuses.”
