Aim: In this retrospective report, the foreign body findings in adult patients with chronic cough were aimed to explore. Material and Method: Between October
2011 and May 2017, patients with bronchial foreign body aspirations mistakenly diagnosed as COPD or asthma in outside centers were collected. The bronchoscopic
and clinical findings of four patients with chronic cough were found from the archieve of the hospital. Results: The age of the patients who applied
to our clinic ranged from 27 to 64 years. Endobronchial foreign bodies were successfully removed with FOB in all patients. The extracted foreign bodies were
stone, headscarf needle, a needle-like object and a foil paper. Discussion: In adults with chronic cough foreign body aspiration should be immediately taken
