Case Report: A 20-month-old male presented with refractory croup and poor feeding since 2 weeks. Bronchoscopy and esophagoscopy was performed due to suspicious history of eating loquat.

Conclusion: Physicians should be aware of the variability of esophageal foreign body presentations to prevent serious complications due to delay in diagnosis.
