Foreign Body (FB) aspiration in adults is usually associated with predisposing risk factors. Clinical manifestations are immediate but less frequently it could lead to insidious lung damage, as demonstrated by the presented case. We present a case of unsuspected FB aspiration, mimicking an infection vs. lung tumor. After left lower lobectomy, pathology revealed a foreign body (animal bone) at the open of lingular bronchus.
