Source: A Manual Of Peroral Endoscopy And Laryngeal Surgery

bodies of organic nature, such as nut kernels, peas, beans, maize,
etc.
2. A diffuse purulent laryngo-tracheo-bronchitis develops within 24

3. Fever, toxemia, cyanosis, dyspnea and paroxysmal cough are
promptly shown.
4. The child is unable to cough up the thick mucilaginous pus

5. Drowned lung, that is to say natural passages idled with pus

6. Pulmonary abscess develops sooner than in case of mineral foreign

7. The older the child the less severe the reaction.
