Hepatic abscess from orally ingested foreign bodies are uncommon. We report here two cases of such a condition treated by foreign body extraction by interventional radiology in one patient and by laparoscopic left lateral sectionectomy after failure of a percutaneous radiological approach in the second. Postoperative course was uneventful and after a clinical follow-up of 11 and 12 months, respectively, both patients were free of symptoms.
