Cases of foreign bodies in the aero digestive tract are common in children. But their presence in posterior choana is rarely encountered as they present with vague set of symptoms. We encountered a female child with history of coin ingestion without any symptoms like nasal blockade and mouth breathing. On X- ray it was found to be in posterior choana and was removed immediately. Hence any suspected foreign bodies in aerodigestive tract should be thoroughly evaluated for their location.

Keywords: Foreign body, Coin & posterior choana.
