Cerebral abscess


This case illustrates the typical appearances of a cerebral abscess, and although the diagnosis is certainly suggested on the basis of CT appearance and clinical scenario (this patient had recently had a chest infection and had been experiencing fevers for the past week), and MRI confirmed the diagnosis, and the patient went on to have a craniotomy. 

Microbiology revealed Streptococcus anginosus group (milleri group) infection.
