Abstract: Worldwide experiences of spontaneous expulsion of foreign body bronchus are unimaginable and quite rare. Literature has a few cases of spontaneous expulsion of -metallic- foreign body such as iron nail, sewing machine needle, cycle valve etc. , but there is hardly any case reported on spontaneous expulsion of a -vegetative- foreign body which is difficult to diagnose. We report one such case experienced by us.


Keywords: Spontaneous expulsion, vegetative foreign body, carrot piece
