Intramural foreign body in oesophagus is very rare and is mostly associated with complications leading to high morbidity and mortality. Recently we came across a coiled metallic wire discovered unexpectedly in a chest X-ray of a 6-month-old male baby. This was further investigated and was found to be located intramurally in the oesophagus. It was successfully removed with rigid oesophagoscopy performed under telescopic guidance. No such foreign body has been reported in an infant so far in English literature.
