Foreign bodies are not uncommon in the aerodigestive tract, especially in children. However, the nasopharynx is an infrequent and unusual site for the impaction of an ingested foreign body as the direction of motion is antigravity. The nasopharynx is a potential site for foreign body impaction, which is often overlooked by otolaryngologists. We report two cases of unusual foreign bodies in the nasopharynx. Our cases explain the need for a high degree of suspicion from the beginning and the importance of radiological imaging before any intervention.
