We present a patient with a solitary brainstem abscess caused by Haemophilus influenza type b (Hib) and Peptostreptococcus species. This is the first report of a Hib brainstem abscess in the English literature. Hib has been mainly associated with respiratory or nasal infections, and a few cases of intracerebral abscesses, but no brainstem abscesses have been described. The literature on solitary brainstem abscesses was reviewed and an overview of the literature between January 1984 and May 2009 is presented.
