Aspiration of ferrous sulfate tablets is a rare and potentially serious condition that can lead to permanent airway stenosis. Diagnosis may be difficult, as presentation often includes nonspecific symptoms. Disease progression and treatment courses have been detailed in a limited number of publications. Herein, we report a case of severe bronchial stenosis that developed following aspiration of a ferrous sulfate tablet. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported attempt of laser fulguration to correct ferrous sulfate–induced bronchial stenosis.
