  Reports of extraluminal migration of foreign bodies from the upper aerodigestive tract are rare. We report an unusual case of a 70 year old lady who swallowed a 2.5 cm linear sharp fish bone which migrated from pharynx to the soft tissue neck via thyroid tissue. This foreign body was easily extracted under local anaesthesia through an incision over the skin. We conclude that careful assessment of patient with foreign body in the throat is crucial to avoid fatal complications.
