ABSTRACT
Eight patients, with brain abscess or localized cerebritis proved histologically, were seen at The National Medical Center from 1971 to 1972, and 3 died, which is 37.5% mortality. Evidence of infection was often minimal in patients with brain abscess. The presence of increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate, highly suggestive of a cerebral abscess when an intracranial space-occupying lesion is suspected. The cerebral angiography and EEG were the best diagnostic tests. Early accurate diagnosis and early intracranial relieving with surgical procedure were most important factor in management of brain abscess. Primary excision of the abscess was considered to be the most satisfactory therapy.
