Besides infections, foreign body incidences are amongst the most frequently encountered pathologies in otorhinolaryngology. Ingested foreign bodies whichmigrate extra-luminally are rare occurrences, which if untreated, result in life threatening complications. We present here, a case of a sharp metallic wire which migrated from the hypopharynx and lodged in the soft tissue of the neck. It was successfully removed via neck exploration and the patient recovered well.
