ABSTRACT
A man appeared in the Emergency Department complaining of discomfort in his neck because he had swallowed a toothpick while taking a nap. The examining physician could find no foreign body in the patient's mouth or pharynx. An additional examination using a fiberscope disclosed the existence of a foreign body in the nose. The toothpick was thought to have migrated to the nose from the pharynx after it was swallowed. Foreign bodies of various sizes may migrate to the nose from other parts of the body. Therefore, protocols must be designed for additional examination of the nose.
