An Unusual Laryngeal Foreign Body in Adult
The accidental aspiration of a foreign body is a frequent domestic accident among children but a rare occurrence in adults. The laryngeal impaction of a coin is an unusual accident; only a few cases have been reported in the literature. Diagnosis is mostly achieved by clinicoradiological examinations. The authors report an uncommon case of laryngeal impaction of a coin in a 21-year- old patient, presenting with dysphonia without dyspnea or stridor. The extraction was performed by endoscopy.
