1. Initial laryngeal spasm followed by wheezing respiration, croupy

cough, and varying degrees of impairment of phonation.

2. Pain may be a symptom. If so, it is usually located in the

laryngeal region, though in some cases it is referred to the ears.

3. The larynx may tolerate a thin, flat, foreign body for a

relatively long period of time, a month or more; but the development

of increasing dyspnea renders early removal imperative in the majority

of cases.
