A case report and the management of a 10-year-old girl who had inhaled a foreign body into the right intermediate bronchus at some unknown (but certainly not recent) time previously is given. A stricture at the site of the impaction of the foreign body was found. The excision of the stricture and repair of the bronchus with pericardium is described together with a 3-year follow-up report. The diagnosis and immediate management of foreign bodies in the bronchus are discussed and the importance of differentiating organic and non-organic foreign bodies is stressed. The management of bronchial strictures is discussed as is the result obtained in the above reported case.
