Abstract

Foreign body aspiration most commonly affects young children,with respiratory symptoms such as
wheeze and cough after a choking
episode. When the foreign body is fi rst inhaled as per witnessed
by the parents or caregiver there is always choking or gaging episode, followed by a coughing spell.
The absence of a cough strongly rules out the possibility of foreign body having entered the air
passage. Here we report a case of chicken bone inhaled as foreign body in a fi ve months old baby.
Key Words: bone, chicken, subglottic
