Buried foreign bodies in occipital clivus are scarce in the pediatric age group. We present an unusual pediatric case in which was accidentally found a buried High-density foreign object inserted into the occipital clivus at the deep side of the adenoid. Clinical examination and CT angiography showed no critical blood vessels or brain tissue involvement. By transoral approach, minimally invasive surgery with the guidance of a computer-assisted navigation system was conducted to remove the foreign body.
