We report the case of an 18 year old Japanese girl who suddenly started coughing after eating a piece of bread. Chest radiography revealed an aspirated marking pin used for sewing located in the right main bronchus. Using a flexible bronchoscope and a shortened endotracheal tube, we successfully removed the foreign body without any complications. Our case shows that a flexible bronchoscope can be used after intubation with an endotracheal tube cut to one-third its length to safely remove an aspirated pin.
