Foreign bodies of the upper aerodigestive tract are frequently encountered by otolaryngorhinologists. We are reporting a rare case of fish bone embedded in the oral tongue. In this case, the foreign body was missed on routine examination for over 2 months. The fish bone was eventually detected by a simple skull radiograph with a protruding tongue. It was surgically removed under local anesthesia and the patient is currently on follow up and asymptomatic.

Keywords: Foreign body tongue, Radiograph tongue.
