A brain abscess (cerebral abscess) is caused by inflammation and collection of infected material that migrates into the brain tissue. The abscess can originate from a local infection, such as an ear infection or dental abscess, or from remote infectious sources, including the lung, heart, and kidney. The abscess can also occur directly to the brain via a head trauma which results in a skull fracture, or a surgical issue. Brain abscesses are associated with congenital heart diseases in children, but the infections typically occur in older patients. Symptoms of a brain abscess include headaches, fever, and drowsiness. Brain abscesses are easily captured using a CT-scan, and intravenous antibiotics are used to treat the infection.
