A linear hyperdense structure (fish bone) measuring about (2.6 * 0.2 cm) is noted lying horizontally in the left paraglottic space about 6 mm up the superior margin of the left lamina of the thyroid cartilage.
Associated soft tissue thickening with loss of adjacent facial planes suggesting inflammation.
The rest of the study is unremarkable.
Foreign body impaction in the larynx is not uncommon and if not detected early can lead to abscess formation, airway obstruction or perforation of the larynx.
