ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 70-year-old male patient with Parkinson's disease suspected with community-acquired pneumonia. It mentions that the flexible bronchoscope was routinely used in the diagnostic sessions to establish an accurate diagnosis. It reveals that delay identification of foreign body aspiration may lead to severe pneumonia in elderly patients. Moreover, it proposes to use the flexible cryoprobe technique in removing foreign body aspiration.
