[Lethal course following overlooked foreign body in the airway].

Abstract

A 52-year-old previously healthy woman suffered death from choking. Asphyxia after aspiration of a foreign body is a well-known, but frequently overlooked cause of sudden death. We describe a case in which a foreign body in the airway was initially overlooked. Early recognition and treatment might have altered the outcome.
