Foreign body (FB) inhalation is frequent in infant and children. Prompt treatment is needed to avoid further complications. We here report two cases of FB right bronchus with delayed presentation. The children had history of FB inhalation which was not properly evaluated initially by their primary physicians. The children were brought to us due persistence of cough, vomiting and difficulty in breathing. Following evaluation, chest x-ray revealed FB in the airway of each of the patients, In both, there was accidental dislodgement of the FB before the specific intervention.
