Abstract

Exogenous foreign bodies in the tracheo bronchial tree, are not uncommon particularly in children. Children who are not given proper individual attention at an early age are more liable to ingest or inhale foreign body. 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 12 year old boy who had accidentally aspirated a metallic whistle. The foreign body was removed successfullv without any complications.
