We report the coexistence of aspirated foreign bodies and brain abscess in two boys. One child had aspirated a metallic needle, and in the other boy partially embedded sunflower seeds were found in the bronchial wall. Both patients had growth of Eikenella corrodens (oral gram-negative flora) from the abscess. Aspirated foreign body in the respiratory tract should be one of the diagnostic considerations if any of the normal oropharyngeal organisms such as E. corrodens is the causative organism of brain abscess.
