Subglottic foreign bodies presenting, as chronic subglottic stenosis is extremely rare in adults. A high index of suspicion and a careful history is of paramount importance in the diagnosis of a subglottic foreign body. Laser should not be used to excise granulation tissue to expose the foreign body because of the danger and potential of a fire particularly when the nature of the foreign body is not known. Rigid bronchoscopes are more beneficial than flexible ones in the removal of foreign bodies especially in long-standing cases.
