We report a case of a brain abscess due to Bacillus macerans and Clostridium sp. following a penetrating periorbital injury by a wooden branch. Intracranial penetration by and retention of a foreign body were not suspected initially, and neurological symptoms developed only 2.5 months later. Previously reported cases of brain abscesses due to Bacillus species are reviewed.
