Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Spontaneous haemorrhage in association with a brain abscess is a very rare occurrence and may confuse the CT diagnosis. A case of cerebral abscess with haemorrhage into the abscess cavity, the surrounding brain parenchyma, the subarachnoid space and the ventricular system is reported. The differential diagnosis, pathogenesis and the management of such a case are discussed and the literature reviewed.
