Abstract

Foreign-body aspiration is often a serious medical condition demanding timely recognition and prompt action. Flexible and rigid bronchoscopy have become the cornerstone of both the diagnosis and treatment of patients with suspected airway foreign bodies, which are most commonly seen in patients with foreign body aspiration. We describe a case of a 58-year-old man with a huge fishhook in the right main bronchus.
