A number of articles on foreign body (FB) ingestion and inhalation have been reported in the literature. Of these, reports of foreign bodies lodging in nasopharynx after inhalation/ingestion are rare. A case of FB inhalation/ingestion presented with history of respiratory distress was admitted for suspected FB bronchus and kept for observation. On examination the child was not distressed and chest examination and X-ray were normal. After 2 days, however, X-ray nasopharynx was taken for rhinorrhoea, nose block and snoring since admission. A large metal nut was found in the roof of the nasopharynx. This case is reported for its rarity, unusual presentation and misleading history.
