Tracheobronchial Metallic Foreign Body Aspiration in an African Child during Magic Game

A significant proportion of cases of tracheobronchial foreign body aspiration due to life-threatening condition is observed during childhood and still one of the most common pediatric emergencies. We report the case of a 4 year-old male child who aspirated a shaped metallic foreign body placed in his mouth while playing magic in school, highlighting prevention via parental education and avoidance of objects that produce the greatest risk with children. The clinical presentation was cough, sputum and chest pain which was relieved almost instantly after aspiration. Early diagnosis and treatment with rigid bronchoscopy under general anesthesia should be performed by experienced personnel in patients suspected of foreign body aspiration to avoid life threatening respiratory sequelae. There is a need of exercise caution by parents in the handling of their children.
