A case of ciprofloxacin tablet aspiration.
Foreign body aspirations occur among children more than adults and can cause life threatening complications. Acute respiratory failure due to foreign body aspiration in adults is a rare condition. We reported a 76-years-old woman who admitted to the emergency room with respiratory failure. The chest X-ray showed total collapse of the left lung. A ciprofloxacin tablet was observed and extracted during the bronchoscopy. To the best of our knowledge this is the first report of a ciprofloxacin tablet aspiration.
