A 2.5-year-old boy was admitted to the hospital with a history of foreign-body aspiration. During the bronchoscopic investigation, a 3-cm chicken bone was observed in the right mainstem bronchus [Figure 1]. Due to friable nature of the object, the author decided to use a cryoprobe for extraction. The object was successfully extracted. Only few case reports have examined the safety and efficacy of this method in children.[1],[2] To the best of the author's knowledge, the index case is the first pediatric patient with a big missed chicken bone aspiration, managed by cryoextraction with a flexible bronchoscope.
