We present the case of a 51 years old female who experienced foreign body aspiration 3 years before. The foreign body, which should be removed by bronchoscopy before, was lodged at the bifurcation of the right inferior bronchus and could only be removed via right lower lobectomy. The patient experienced a swift recovery and was well at follow-up 8 months later.
