An Unusual Laryngeal Foreign Body in Adult

The accidental aspiration of a foreign body (FB) is a frequent domestic accident among children but a rare occurrence in adults. An impacted laryngeal FB in children is not uncommon. It represents 44.83% of FB of respiratory tract in Senegal [1].The laryngeal impaction of a coin is an unusual accident; at least 3 cases have been reported in the literature [2–4]. In all cases, hoarseness was the main complaintwithout respiratory disorder. Diagnosis was mostly achieved by clinicoradiological examinations. We report the case of a patient with an unusual impacted laryngeal foreign body and we discuss the diagnostic and therapeutic aspects.
