Ingestion of foreign bodies is common. However, ingestion of an adult tooth brush and its endoscopic removal is reported rare in literature. Here we report two cases of adult tooth brush ingestion with and without psychiatric illness in the past. Endoscopic removal of the tooth brush was done by using snare and rat tooth forceps differing from other case reports. Hence these cases are peculiar and reported.
