FBA can result in a spectrum of presentations ranging from incidental to acutely life threatening. In the literature, numerous unique foreign bodies in the tracheobronchial tree have been reported. Here, we present case of a 2 yrs old child who presented to us with respiratory distress. Based on history and examination diagnosis of a foreign body aspiration was made and an emergency diagnostic rigid bronchoscopy was done retrieving the bulb from left main bronchus.
