Condoms during oral sex: the hidden danger

Women inhales condom during fellatio

Accidental condom inhalation.

A 27-year-old lady presented with persistent cough, sputum and fever for the preceding six months. Inspite of trials with antibiotics and anti-tuberculosis treatment for the preceeding four months, her symptoms did not improve. A subsequent chest radiograph showed non-homogeneous collapse-consolidation of right upper lobe. Videobronchoscopy revealed an inverted bag like structure in right upper lobe bronchus and rigid bronchoscopic removal with biopsy forceps confirmed the presence of a condom. Detailed retrospective history also confirmed accidental inhalation of the condom during fellatio.

It's an old paper, but perhaps not well-publicized enough.

I can't really picture how this would happen.

How do you NOT know about the condom sitting in your lungs?!
