Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Unlike an intraventricular rupture of a brain abscess, a primary intraventricular abscess is rare. While the former usually presents with acute clinical deterioration and carries a high rate of mortality, the latter tends to present in a subacute fashion. In this paper, we present a 62-year-old female with an intraventricular brain abscess. We discuss the pathogenesis of this clinical entity, describe the management options and review the literature on this topic.
