Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of brain abscess involving Haemophilus paraphrophilus and Actinomyces odontolyticus is presented. This combination of organisms has not previously been described. All brain abscess specimens should routinely be processed rapidly and cultured for a prolonged period to ensure recovery of fastidious organisms which may have implications for antibiotic therapy.
