Foreign body ingestion should be considered as an important differential in a child with difficult asthma. We report an 11-year-old male child with foreign body aspiration who initially was diagnosed and treated as difficult asthma. Later on, he was diagnosed to have a foreign body in the right bronchus, which was successfully removed by flexible bronchoscopy.
