86 Possible Causes for Brain Abscess, Malaise, Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

  • Osteomyelitis of the Frontal Bone

    Tuon FF, Russo R, Nicodemo AC ; Brain abscess secondary to frontal osteomyelitis. Rev Inst Med Trop Sao Paulo. 2006 Jul-Aug48(4):233-5.[] Male patient admitted to the hospital by fever, headache, malaise and diplopia. Physical examination shows left eye proptosis, oedema and ecchymosis.[] The chronic is characterized by low fever, general malaise, pain, edema may also occur sino-cutaneous fistulas, sequestration and secretion through the bone with cyclic exacerbation[]

  • Brain Abscess

    A brain abscess or cerebral abscess is formed as a result of an inflammation and infection of the brain parenchyma secondary to remote or contiguous infections.[] Clinical features: The earliest stage where the brain tissue is invaded (stage of encephalitis) is marked by the presence of headache, fever, malaise and vomiting.[] Symptoms include fever, malaise, irritability, severe headache, convulsions, vomiting, and other signs of intracranial hypertension.[]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    Basal ganglia dysfunction Brain abscess Brain surgery Brain surgery - discharge Central pontine myelinolysis Cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) collection EEG Hepatic encephalopathy[] abscess, syphilis Travel to countries with endemic infectious disease Amebiasis, cysticercosis, hydatidosis STAGING Brain cancers do not conform to a standard staging system[] The abscess displayed a sharp border with the underlying gliotic brain tissue.[]

  • Acute Sinusitis

    Serious complications (e.g. brain abscess) were rare. We found that antibiotics are not a first-choice treatment for adults with short-duration sinus infection.[] These are meningitis, epidural abscess, subdural abscess, intracerebral abscess, cavernous sinus thrombosis and superior sagittal sinus thrombosis.[] Acute sinusitis usually follows a cold and presents with nasal obstruction, facial pain, dental pain, purulent rhinorrhoea, sinus tenderness and in some cases fever and malaise[]

  • Subdural Empyema

    The incidence of brain abscess fluctuated over time, while that of subdural empyema remained stable.[] Dural attachments, especially at sutures, and the sagittal sinus contain the infection.[] Malaise, fever, and declining mental status can occur rapidly. Complications can include dural venous thrombosis, parenchymal abscess, epidural abscess , and meningitis.[]

  • Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis

    This case highlights the challenge of making early diagnoses of a brain abscess; since it has symptomology mimicking cavernous sinus thrombosis .This is due to the involvement[] The list of complications provided in an article by Mueller regarding internal jugular vein thrombosis included pulmonary embolism, subclavian vein and superior sagittal sinus[] Brain abscess and parameningeal infections. In: Goldman L, Schafer AI, eds. Goldman-Cecil Medicine. 25th ed. Philadelphia, PA: Elsevier Saunders; 2016:chap 413.[]

  • Intracranial Abscess

    A high number of brain abscesses are polymicrobial.[] sinus thrombosis, have been reported to be 3.7%–24%, [2], [3] while mortality and morbidity rates have been reported to be 25% and 10%, respectively. [4] Purpose In this[] Clinical features: The earliest stage where the brain tissue is invaded (stage of encephalitis) is marked by the presence of headache, fever, malaise and vomiting.[]

  • Frontal Sinusitis

    A review of recent experiences with fulminating frontal sinusitis and its intracranial complications such as subdural empyema, brain abscess, epidural abscess, and meningitis[] Sometimes thrombophlebitis can develop causing superior sagittal sinus thrombosis and cavernous sinus thrombosis.[] The patient develops a cold associated with fever, malaise, and head pain located over the involved sinus.[]

  • Pneumococcal Meningitis

    Brain abscess formation as a sequelae of community-acquired pneumococcal meningitis is extremely rare, accounting for less than 1% of all meningitis complications.[] SAGITTAL SINUS.[] abscess, septic arthritis, or osteomyelitis.[]

  • Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

    abscess following transorbital penetrating injury due to bamboo fragments J Maruya, K Yamamoto, M Wakai, U Kaneko Neurologia medico-chirurgica 42 (3), 143-146, 2002 32 2002[] Subsequent computed tomography and magnetic resonance venography confirmed a superior sagittal sinus thrombosis.[] These include intracranial or parameningeal infection (meningitis, encephalitis, brain abscess); malignancy; intracranial hemorrhage such as subdural hemorrhage (SDH), intraventricular[]
