ABSTRACT
The authors report a case of brain abscess associated with pulmonary arteriovenous malformation(AVM). As right to left shunt in systemic circulation can precipitate brain abscess in congenital cyanotic heart disease, arteriovenous fistula in pulmonary AVM is an etiologic factor of brain abscess. Brain abscess associated with pulmonary AVM is very rare and has so far been lacking in previous report in Korea. The pertinent literatures of brain abscess associated with pulmonary AVM are also reviewed.
Key Words: Brain abscess; Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation(AVM)
