Abstract

Complete extra-esophageal migration of a foreign object is rare. Its early and accurate diagnosis by complementary imaging modalities is crucial for a successful extraction. We present a case of ingested wire bristle, which completely traversed the esophageal mucosa to position itself in the soft tissue of the left neck adjacent to the internal carotid artery. We discuss the importance of imaging in the detection of migrating foreign bodies, and raise awareness of this serious complication.
