One-year-old boy was playing with toy trumpet when he sustained deep lacerations to the interior of his mouth, which required surgery and was followed by bouts of post-anesthesia pneumonia and middle ear infections at regular intervals. In addition to the physical injuries the boy suffered, he was diagnosed with a speech delay for which he requires therapy. After the trumpet accident, the boy stopped speaking for eight months. The boy’s language was developing normally until the accident.
