ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Cerebral abscess

History: 52 y.o. man presents to the emergency room with headache and confusion. History of tooth extraction approximately three weeks ago.

Findings: Non-contrast CT scan demonstrates a well defined round mass with low density center and associated vasogenic edema. MRI demonstrates thin rim of enhancement with inherent low T2 signal intensity in rim. Restricted diffusion is present on DWI.

Ddx: Metastatic disease GBM (glioblastoma) Resolving contusion Tumefactive multiple sclerosis Cerebral abscess

Dxhow: Surgical drainage

No MeSH data available.


Companion Case - This 25 y.o. man died from HIV/AIDS.  At autopsy, there were multiple abscesses, including this on in the thalamus.  The red rim is the granulation tissue (vascular and fibroblasts).  Inside that rim is the inflammatory exudate (white) and some necrosis in the center.
