Exogenous foreign bodies in the tracheo bronchial tree are particularly common.
Complications are related to site, size, shape, nature and duration of foreign body.
Foreign body aspiration is associated with significant morbidity. Awareness of these
possible complications and a high index of suspicion is the key to successful
management. We report a case of bronchial foreign body in a 32 year old male patient
who had accidentally ingested a metallic foreign body. Foreign body was removed
successfully without complications.
