Abstract

Radio-opaque foreign bodies are commonly seen in dental pan-oral tomographs. A case is described of the presentation of a patient with a signet ring lodged in the left nasal cavity discovered by routine pan-oral tomography in dental practice, and of its subsequent removal by an otorhinolaryngologist.
