Although rare in adults, foreign body aspiration (FBA) is a serious accident which can be potentially life threatening or lead to significant sequelae. We report the case of a 50 year old patient without previous pathological history, presenting to the emergency department with chest pain, intermittent cough and exertional dyspnea occurring six days after the accidental aspiration of his plastic dental prosthesis during a meal. Clinical examination was unremarkable. Chest X-ray as well as abdominal x-ray requiring no prior preparation showed no abnormalities...

Foreign body aspiration remains a common and potentially serious pediatric problem. Most aspirated foreign bodies are food. The education of parents and caregivers about choking hazards and how to avoid them is critical to reduce the incidence of these events. The pediatricians play a key role in promoting injury prevention. We indicate the main characteristics of hazardous food and we present recommendations on age-appropriate meals, adequate forms of food preparation and behavioral rules at mealtimes in order to reduce food choking...

A 60-year-old male, diabetic presented with a soft tissue mass over the right forearm of 15 days duration. The swelling was 5 x 3 cm and a clinical diagnosis of neurofibroma was made. Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) was done using standard technique. Smears showed predominantly suppurative inflammation, foreign body giant cells, granulomas and fungal hyphae. KOH mount, culture and germ tube test was positive. Final diagnosis of fungal granuloma was made. Fungal infections should be included in the differential diagnosis of a soft tissue mass lesion...

INTRODUCTION: Foreign body in respiration tract is a life-threatening emergency and requires urgent treatment. The diagnosis and treatment requires awareness and suspicion of signs and symptoms of foreign body aspiration. CASE: A unique case of total dental prothesis aspiration of a 44-year-old aphasic patient is presented. The prothesis is completely removed from the larynx. DISCUSSION: Foreign-body aspiration is frequently suspected in children, it is rarely thought about in adults with subacute or chronic respiratory symptoms unless an evident history of an aspiration event is obtained...

OBJECTIVE: Foreign body aspiration (FBA) could be a serious life-threatening condition in children. Patients usually underwent bronchoscopy with suspicious of FBA alone. In this study, we aimed to determine which patients need to go to bronchoscopy based on pre-operative findings. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of patients underwent bronchoscopy between 1999 and 2015 was performed. Clinical symptoms, witnessed aspiration event (WAE), physical examination findings (PEFs) and radiological findings (RFs) were analyzed by multivariate analysis to evaluate the indications of bronchoscopy...

OBJECTIVES: Post-obstructive pulmonary edema is thought to occur from hemodynamic changes secondary to forced inspiration against the closed airway due to acute or chronic airway obstruction. We report a case of a 13 month-old boy who developed pulmonary edema from aspirated foreign body, nuts. METHODS: He underwent emergency bronchoscopy to confirm the clinical diagnosis of aspirated nuts in the trachea and nuts were removed endoscopically. His trachea was then intubated and he was mechanically ventilated with oxygen...

High minute ventilation is required to lower intracranial pressures in patients with intracranial bleed. Respiratory acidemia consequent to ventilatory difficulty is dangerous in such patients as it further raises intracranial tension. We describe such a case. A 24-year-old man had to be intubated and mechanically ventilated after he met with a road traffic accident and sustained extensive maxillofacial injuries and intracranial bleed. A tooth was accidentally aspirated in this injury and progressively resulted in left lower lobe collapse, pneumomediastinum, and consequent difficult ventilation...

Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) has an effective role in both diagnosis and management of patients with lung cancer. There are many reasons could cause false positivity on PET/CT.A 60-year-old man was admitted a mass on thorax CT and diagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma. Lobectomy with lymph node dissection was performed after evaluation of distant metastases. There were pathological lymph nodes detected on PET/CT at six month following period. Endobronchial ultrasonography guided transbronchial needle aspiration was performed for differantial diagnosis...

We describe the case of a 16-year-old male who aspirated a beverage can tab resulting in significant functional impairment. Since the introduction of beverage can opening tabs ("pop-tops" or "pull-tabs") nearly 50 years ago, five cases of their aspiration have been reported in the literature and this is the first case to report tracheal lodgment. We describe the clinical course for this patient including the inadequacy of radiographic evaluation and a significant delay in diagnosis. We highlight unique features of small aluminum foreign bodies that require consideration and mention a potential change in epidemiology associated with evolving product design...

It is unusual but not uncommon for foreign bodies to be missed at bronchoscopy. This case report highlights the importance of the clinical history in the diagnosis of aspirated foreign bodies and the usefulness of chest imaging modalities. A 6-year-old boy presented with recurrent breathlessness and cough of 2 months. He was said to have aspirated the base cap of a pen at about the time symptoms started. He had two sessions of rigid bronchoscopy and a session of flexible bronchoscopy at three different hospitals...

Foreign body aspiration (FBA) is a preventable cause of mortality and morbidity in children. We conducted a chart review of children who presented to a university hospital due to FBA in the period 1999-2014. Children were either managed with bronchoscopy for removal of the foreign body or died due to FBA. A total of 103 children were seen due to FBA including 27 deaths. The majority of children were boys and were less than 3 years old. Most aspirated foreign bodies were food-related, mainly peanuts. The majority of children presented with acute choking incidents, a smaller number presented with recurrent chest infections, and few children's choking incidents were unwitnessed...
