Title Light Emitting Diode (LED) Bulb Aspiration in Northern Ghana: A Case Report and Literature Review
 
Creator Adjeso, Theophilus
Issaka, Adamu
 
Description Light emitting diode (LED) bulb is an unusual cause of foreign body aspiration. We present a case of a 6-year-old boy who reported with a four-day history of difficulty in breathing and cough following a LED bulb aspiration retrieved via rigid bronchoscopy. This present case suggests that LED bulb should be considered in the differential diagnosis of foreign body aspirations in our environment.
