A carcass of cockroach was removed from the lungs of a 4 year old boy from Rajarghat by Bronchoscopy performed by Dr. Pallab Chatterjee – Consultant Paediatrician and expert in respiratory medicine.
Doctor said “I can only summarise that he put a cockroach egg in his mouth. Had it reached his stomach it would have passed out through his stool. But somehow it got into his breathing tube and germinated there, leading to the chronic cough.”
