Asthma is a heterogeneous disease, usually characterized by chronic airway inflammation. Foreign body aspiration is one of the differential
diagnosis of this disease that is characterized by exacerbations. Similar complaints may ocur during asthma attacks as during foreign body aspiration. Here in, we presented a case with foreign body aspiration who was followed with a diagnosis of asthma
and admitted with complaints of cough and wheezing that did not improve despite treatment. In these
cases, history and physical examination should be done carefully and bronchoscopy should be performed for diagnosis and treatment in suspicious cases.
