Can a fish bone get stuck in your throat for months?
The extraluminal migration of fish bones in the upper digestive tract is a rare event, and it is even more unlikely that the foreign body will remain in the neck for a prolonged period. We report the unique case of a 69-year-old woman who remained asymptomatic, while a fish bone was lodged in her neck for 9 months.
