ABSTRACT

Los cuerpos extraños alojados en la vía aéreodigestiva superior son un motivo de consulta frecuente para el otorrinolaringólogo. Uno de los más frecuentes son las espinas de pescado. En raras ocasiones, éstas migran hacia tejidos adyacentes y generan complicaciones importantes. Presentamos el caso de una paciente que tras la ingesta de pescado manifiesta sensación de cuerpo extraño faríngeo, odinofagia y dolor látero cervical derecho. Dada la ausencia de hallazgos a la exploración física y laringoscópica se realiza una tomografia computarizada cervical, visualizando un cuerpo extraño alojado en la glándula tiroidea. Se interviene mediante cervicotomía media, realizando la extracción de la espina sin complicaciones. El diagnóstico precoz y manejo adecuado es determinante para prevenir complicaciones en estos casos.


Foreign bodies in the aerodigestive tract are commonly confronted in otolaryngology practice. The most frequent are the fish bones. In rare cases they can move and cause numerous complications. We report the case of a patient that manifest the sensation of pharyngeal foreign body, after fish ingestion. She also referred odynophagia and right cervical pain. Physical and laryngoscopic examination were normal. A cervical CT was performed, where a foreign body lodged in the thyroid gland was visualized, median cervicotomy was done and the foreign body was extracted. Early diagnosis and adequate management are crucial to prevent complications in these cases.
