Dr Sivaraman G, Dr Santosh Kumar, Dr Pradipta Kumar Parida, Dr Arun Alexander, Dr Sunil Kumar Saxena, Dr Surianarayanan Gopalakrishnan.

Foreign body pin in the Oesophagus usually occurs in mentally challenged people or accidentally and is a very occurrence in emergency. Rarity, technical difficulty in removing the foreign body, complications associated with the delay in diagnosis and treatment, migration of the foreign body extraluminally and site, shape and position of the sharp end makes this entity interesting and worth reporting.
We report a mentally sound adult male who had accidental ingestion of sharp foreign body pin which migrated very early extraluminally that lead to a negative oesophagoscopy, and necessitated external removal.

Key words: Foreign body, Oesophagus
