Abstract


Nasal foreign bodies are very common in children but very rare in adults unless self inflicted. Following a road traffic accident foreign bodies like tiny stone particles and dust even small metallic foreign bodies can enter the wound site and cause inflammatory reaction. Identification and removal of any foreign body is always necessary. Loose foreign bodies are always dangerous because it may travel to posterior nasal space and there is high chance of aspiration. This is a case where a tooth impacted inside nose since 3 months following a road traffic accident. Foreign body was successfully removed by an open rhinoplasty approach. Open rhinoplasty approach is a safe and very effective way of foreign body removal in cases where a conventional endoscopic approach is not feasible.
