We present a case of a pediatric nasal foreign body removal with a new technique, the “hook-scope” technique, in which the flexible scope is used both as an endoscope and as a hook and permits a safe and rapid extraction of the object. This is the first report where such technique is presented with an image-documentation of a real case.
