Clinical Case Study of a Surgically Treated Patient for Multiple Brain Abscesses
Keywords:Brain abscess ;, progresses, Magnetic resonance imaging
Spreading from contiguous focus of infection can be most common mechanism of brain abscess formation, and the most often sources are middle ear, mastoid cells and paranasal sinuses. Brain abscesses with temporal lobe or cerebellum location are usually specific to otitis focus.Recent studies describe a decrease in a number of cases secondary to otitis media with an increasing of neurosurgery and trauma caused brain abscesses.
