Ingested foreign bodies are not unusual. In most cases, these foreign bodies are easily removed. We report a relatively rare case of a fish bone migrating into the parapharyngeal space, which was removed through a cervical incision. A 30-year-old-woman with a 3-week history of sore throat since ingesting a fish bone had complained of a left-sided neck mass and pain. The ingested fish bone penetrated the pharynx and migrated to the substernocleidmastoid muscle. Furthermore, a parapharyngeal neck abscess had formed. The fish bone was successfully removed via neck exploration and the patient recovered well.
