A 2.5-year-old boy was admitted to the hospital with a history of foreign-body aspiration. During the bronchoscopic investigation, a 3-cm chicken bone was observed in the right mainstem bronchus [Figure 1]. Due to friable nature of the object, the author decided to use a cryoprobe for extraction. The object was successfully extracted. Only few case reports have examined the safety and efficacy of this method in children., To the best of the author's knowledge, the index case is the first pediatric patient with a big missed chicken bone aspiration, managed by cryoextraction with a flexible bronchoscope.
