Foreign body aspiration is still a cause of significant morbidity in children. Complications occur due to difficulty in diagnosis and treatment. An eight-year-old child presented with a history of recurrent cough for 3 days. Rigid bronchoscopy under general anesthesia revealed plastic bead occupying right main bronchus. Removal with grasping forceps failed for several times due to spherical, smooth, and large bead. Finally, Fogarty catheter was passed through bead under C-arm guidance and successfully removed.
