Abstract

The management of an unusual nasal foreign body is illustrated. A 34-year-old male presented to our outpatient clinic after inhalation of liquid cast during preparation of a plaster mask. The foreign body had solidified within the nasal cavities, causing obstruction and headache. Ambulatory removal was incomplete, therefore ESS was indicated.
