Following aspiration of grass inflorescence, it often migrates to the peripheral part of the airway due to its unique shape. It often causes complications like chronic pneumonia, recurrent asthmatic attacks, lung abscess, recurrent hemoptysis, and bronchiectasis that may necessitate surgical intervention. In this case, we have reported a 13-year-old boy with grass inflorescence aspiration. The bronchoscopic procedure failed to remove the foreign body, so he underwent thoracotomy.
