Fish bone injuries of the upper aerodigestive tract
Bombay Hospital Journal. 2000 Jul; 42(3): 508-9

ABSTRACT: Fish bones are amongst the commonest of foreign bodies causing complications in the upper aerodigestive tract. The complications range from perforation to formation of pseudoaneurysm of the external carotid artery. An atypical presentation of transmigration of the fish bone across the neck is presented. Awareness of all possible complications due to fish bones is essential to avoid misdiagnosis.
