If the foreign body be not removed, the resulting

chronic sepsis or pulmonary hemorrhage will prove fatal. Removal of

the foreign body usually results in complete recovery without further

local treatment. Occasionally, secondary dilatation of a bronchial

stricture may be required. All cases will need, besides removal of the

foreign body, an antituberculous regimen, and offer a good prognosis

if this be followed.
