Foreign body aspiration is unusual in the neonate, but the risks may now be increased because of the more vigorous use of direct tracheal suctioning and/or intubation employed in neonates with suspected pneumonia, meconium aspiration, or requiring assisted ventilation. This report describes a neonate with a foreign body in the airway from such a procedure.
