We would like to bring to the attention of readers that trees do not grow in humans. To the best of our knowledge, there has never been a single report in the medical literature of seeds and/or plants growing in humans. If they did, watermelon seeds and peanuts,4,5 which are the most commonly aspirated foreign bodies, would be growing out of control from our lungs. Moreover, it makes no biological sense that in the absence of sunlight and appropriate nutrient medium, photosynthesis and germination of a seed can take place. Foreign-body aspiration often goes undetected if the initial choking episode is not obvious. In adults, a reason for the lack of acute symptoms may be the larger caliber of airways, resulting in most foreign bodies lodging in distal airways. Seeds and plant material by themselves, however, are radiolucent, and any radio-opacity seen is likely from complications. A high index of suspicion is required. A bronchoscopic examination of the airway will establish the diagnosis.
