Abstract: Introduction. Foreign body aspiration into tracheobronchial tree represents an urgent condition at high level of risk. Etiology is different, and this condition is typical for all ages with highest incidence in pediatric population. Case report. A successful foreign body removal (partial denture) in a 34-year old man was presented. Radiography and computerized tomography of the chest showed a foreign body localized at the level of the right bronchus including the right middle lobe bronchus. By the use of rigid bronchoscopy, a foreign body was visualized and mobilized from the segmental bronchus in the first act, and then completely extracted. Conclusion. Efficient diagnostics and extraction are imperative for the aspirated foreign body preventing life-threatening complications.
