CASE PRESENTATION: 73-year-old female diabetic presented with complaints of persistent fever, cough, and pleuritic chest pain for 6 weeks. She failed three courses of antibiotics, including one as an inpatient. Physical exam was significant for bilateral coarse breath sounds and right sided rhonchi. Labs showed persistent eosinophilia with a peak of 15.1%, not present on her prior admission. Chest X-Ray (CXR) and CT chest showed right lower lobe infiltrates and evidence of bronchial impactions. Considering her persistent symptoms, new development of eosinophilia, and resistance to broad spectrum antibiotics, a bronchoscopy was performed. Bronchoscopy showed an unexpected finding of what appeared to be a kernel of corn with adjacent granulation tissue in a segment of the RLL. BAL was remarkable for 25% eosinophilia. Remarkably, following removal of the foreign body, the patient’s fevers and eosinophilia immediately resolved. When the patient was informed of the unexpected finding, she recalled an episode of harsh coughing while eating popcorn nearly eight weeks prior.
