A persistent cough related to aspiration of a nonradiopaque bone

Paquette, Roland PA-C

Collapse Box


ABSTRACT: Aspiration of a foreign body by an adult often is not diagnosed until a month or more after the event, because of a lack of presenting symptoms indicative of an aspiration and low reliability, sensitivity, and specificity of plain film radiographs. Instead, the foreign body aspiration typically is diagnosed during the evaluation of other lung-related pathology.
