Introduction: Foreign Body Aspiration (FBA) represents a life-threatening emergency .It occurs primarily in children below 3 years. Generally, the most common aspirated FB is organic material such as nuts or beans. Sharp Foreign Bodies (FBs) are of particular concern to the attending clinician, because of their potential to perforate the air passage and cause possible complications. Here in, we report a rare case of sharp metallic pin aspiration in a child.

Case report: A 15-month-old boy was referred to our Emergency Ward due to the sudden onset of chocking and dysphagia which were transient. His mother was a tailor. He had history of ingestion of the similar pin two months ago. Chest radiography identified the radiopaque pin in the left side of chest. Rigid bronchoscopy was done and a sharp metallic pin was removed.

Conclusions: Aspiration of a sharp, metallic FB is a serious injury. Pain X-ray can confirm the diagnosis .FB inhalation is preventable by creating public awareness and parenteral education to keep small objects out of children.
