Abstract


Tracheobronchial and esophageal foreign body aspirations are life-threatening, and require immediate intervention. Major symptoms in case of a foreign body aspiration are shortness of breath, cough, wheezing and cyanosis. In esophageal foreign bodies, the major symptoms caused by irritation are dysphagia, hypersalivation and odynophagia. Foreign bodies lodged in the cervical esophagus and hypopharynx can cause airway obstructions by moving into the adjacent organs with the effect of coughing, swallowing or esophageal peristalsis. In this study, a patient who swallowed a chicken bone which caused a perforation in the proximal esophagus and then aspirated the bone into the right main bronchus is presented.
