High morbidity was linked to a delayed diagnosis of a foreign body airway. The presence of a foreign body in the lungs for a longer period of time can result in a more serious complication. The presence of a radiolucent foreign body, a non-organic foreign body, and unwitnessed foreign body absorption both add to the diagnosis of foreign body aspiration taking longer. We present a five-month case of an undiagnosed radio invisible foreign body in the right bronchus in a 6-year-old girl, whose parents observed the initiation of foreign body ingestion. He eventually developed pneumonia and atelectasis.
