Un enfant de 4 ans était suivi pour un asthme résistant à un traitement inhalé bien conduit. Les symptômes respiratoires sont restés inexpliqués pendant plus de 3 ans. Lors d'un épisode de dyspnée aiguë fébrile une masse médiastinale périoesophagienne associée à des lésions érosives des 2 corps vertébraux adjacents a été découverte. Le transit oesogastroduodénal a mis en évidence un corps étranger enclavé dans un diverticule oesophagien. L'extraction du corps étranger par endoscopie rigide a permis la disparition de l'ensemble des symptômes respiratoires.
