Most cases of foreign bodies in the nose and nasal cavity occur in toddlers and children from 1-8 years of age. Common objects found in noses include food material, tissue paper, beads, toys, and rocks.

A Rhinolith is a calculus present in the nasal cavity. The word is derived from the roots rhino- and -lith, literally meaning “nose stone”. It is an uncommon medical phenomenon, not to be confused with dried nasal mucus.
