A cockroach crawling up your nostril and lodging itself inside your head is probably not a diagnosis most doctors have considered. So maybe it's understandable that when a woman living near Chennai, India, complained of a pain in her nose that was keeping her from getting to sleep, the first doctor she consulted didn’t reach that correct diagnosis. He told the woman the pain should resolve on its own. Fortunately, a second physician referred her to Chennai’s Stanley Medical College and Hospital, where the ENT Department discovered the embedded insect. Using endoscopy, they succeeded in pulling the still-living roach from a sinus cavity through the nose. Dr. M.N. Shankar, head of ENT at Stanley, remarked that the procedure may have prevented a possible infection of the brain.
