A Russian man had mistakenly put a coin in his nose when he was only six years old. It was surgically removed from his nose when he complained of a breathing problem at the age of 59.
Doctors in Russia said they recently faced a unique case when the patient told them he was unable to breathe through his right nostril for the past several months.
CT scan of the patient showed his nose was blocked by some object. Following an endoscopy, doctors were surprised to discover that a coin was stuck in the man’s nose.
When they discussed it with the patient, he remembered how he had mistakenly put the coin in his nose when he was six and did not tell anyone about it because he was afraid of his strict mother.
