Intracranial foreign bodies are quite common entities following head trauma, however sewing needles located in the midline are rare and their diagnoses later in the life is even rarer. These cases are challanging in respect to their causative relations to seizures, their treatments and indications for surgery. A 44 year old male patient presented with nonspecific headache. On his cranial computarized tomography scans, a intracranial sewing needle is diagnosed in the midline. In the literature these cases are generally presented with CSF leak, neurological deficits and epileptic seizures. Rusting of the needle is supposed as triggering factor for epilepsy. The case is uncommon because of the fact that is diagnosed incidentally and the case is managed conservatively. In the following report, the case is discussed in accordance with the literature.
