Intracranial foreign bodies are rare entities, sewing needles are even more so. There are very few cases reported in scientific literature. Most of the patients presented with headache or seizure, but some of them were asymptomatic. We detail a 61 year old man who was admitted to our hospital with slight dizzy and accidently found a sewing needle in his brain. Fortunately, he suffered no headache or epileptic seizure and was asymptomatic during the past years.
