Airway foreign body aspiration is more common in younger children of <3 years of age; it commonly affects the right bronchus and is often characterized by sudden onset of coughing, choking, and difficulty in breathing. We report a case of a 6-year-old girl who presented with fever, cough, and difficulty in breathing who never had any preceding episode or witnessed choking or gagging event, she was diagnosed of pneumonia, and a chest X-ray revealed a left bronchial foreign body. She had bronchoscopy and the foreign body was removed successfully.
