Abstract

Pharyngoesophageal fish bone is a commonly encountered ORL emergency. Usually the patient is able to point the most painful site to suggest location of the foreign body, immediately after ingestion. We report a patient with chronic, severe odynophagia which later on was found to have a fish bone piercing through epiglottis. The symptoms were present for more than 10 months before definite diagnosis was made and removal was done.

Keywords: Foreign body; Fish bone; Epiglottis.
