Abstract

We report a case of aspirated tooth in a patient with cervical bone fracture. The tooth was removed from the bronchus through the pre- existing tracheostomy stoma. Removal of bronchial foreign body using tracheostomy stoma is reported rarely in the literature. We propose tracheostomy as mode of such foreign body removal for patient with cervical fracture or patient who neck flexion is contraindicated.
