Abstract: A 65-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital after aspirating a peanut. Bronchoscopic examination revealed obstruction of the right basal bronchus. Use of clamps achieved incomplete removal. Hemoptysis appeared after a few days. Computed tomography (CT) of the lung revealed consolidation in the right lower segment. Methylprednisolone and antibiotics improved symptoms, but chest CT revealed persistent consolidation. Consolidation improved after bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) of the right basal bronchus during bronchoscopic re-examination. BAL is useful in treating pneumonia resulting from an aspirated foreign body.
