470 Possible Causes for Brain Abscess, Obstructive Hydrocephalus

  • Subdural Hematoma

    Subdural empyema, brain abscess, and meningitis have been reported to occur in less than 1% of patients after operative drainage of a chronic SDH.[] KEYWORDS: Cerebral ventriculomegaly; Congenital hydrocephalus; Intracranial hypertension; Newborn; Obstructive hydrocephalus; Subdural hematoma; Ventricular atrium diverticulum[] (transient ischemic attacks), encephalitis and brain lesions such as tumors or abscesses.[]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    Basal ganglia dysfunction Brain abscess Brain surgery Brain surgery - discharge Central pontine myelinolysis Cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) collection EEG Hepatic encephalopathy[] Symptoms, as a result of a mass effect from the tumour or due to obstructive hydrocephalus, include morning headaches, nausea, vomiting, diplopia (a manifestation of sixth[] abscess, syphilis Travel to countries with endemic infectious disease Amebiasis, cysticercosis, hydatidosis STAGING Brain cancers do not conform to a standard staging system[]

  • Meningeal Tuberculosis

    Occasionally a brain abscess (thanks to for this image) is found in the work-up of meningeal TB, in this case in an AIDS patient.[] However, surgery is required for patients with obstructive hydrocephalus and those in poor grades.[] Tyson G, Newman P, Strachen WE (1978) Tuberculous brain abscess. Surg Neurol 10: 323–325 Google Scholar 12.[]

  • Neurocysticercosis

    In this article, we present the case of a pediatric patient with neurocysticercosis who was misdiagnosed with brain abscess because of focal seizures in another hospital.[] Intraventricular cysts or arachnoiditis usually cause hydrocephalus in neurocysticercosis but craniocervical junction cysts causing obstructive hydrocephalus are rare.[] ., tuberculosis, other parasitic diseases, metastatic or primary brain cancer, brain abscess) when a lesion is found on CT. 9, 23 Magnetic resonance imaging also is a useful[]

  • Tuberculosis of Nervous System

    abscess; and TB clinical trial.[] In both situations, brain damage results from a cytokine-mediated inflammatory response, which causes vasculitis, obstructive hydrocephalus, and cranial nerve palsy.[] Brain abscesses of Mycobacterium tuberculosis can induce seizures and coma leading to death and complicated due to multiorgan failure.[]

  • Meningioma

    They often cause obstructive hydrocephalus and commonly are treated with surgical resection or stereotactic radiosurgery.[] Intraventricular May block the flow of cerebrospinal fluid causing pressure to build up (obstructive hydrocephalus), which can produce headaches, wooziness, and changes in[] Raised intracranial pressure effects - eg, obstructive hydrocephalus with headache.[]

  • Stroke

    Obstructive hydrocephalus is also noted, with dilatation of the lateral ventricles, likely due to compression of the foramen of Monroe.[] Neurosurgical opinion should be sought for cases of secondary hydrocephalus.[] Mechanical clot retrieval aims to remove the arterial obstruction in the brain, restoring blood flow to the brain and minimising brain tissue damage.[]

  • 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.[] hydrocephalus will commonly be seen when intraventricular spread has occurred MRI MRI is more sensitive than CT.[] Ventriculostomy is occasionally required if evidence exists for marked increased intracranial pressure due to obstructive hydrocephalus, ventricular rupture, or other uncontrolled[]

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    During operation, we encounter the brain abscess and were surprised to find a middle cerebral artery aneurysm while dissecting.[] Lab investigations-cont • If the scan fails to establish the diagnosis of SAH and no mass lesion or obstructive hydrocephalus is found, • Then a lumbar puncture should be[] Hydrocephalus (obstruction of the flow of cerebrospinal fluid) may complicate SAH in both the short and long term.[]

  • Traumatic Pneumocephalus

    Pneumocephalus places the patient at risk for infections, namely meningitis, cerbritis, brain abscess, and epidural abscess, as well as risk for cerebrospinal fluid leak.[] Most cases of hydrocephalus are obstructive hydrocephalus, which is further classified depending on the location of the obstruction, as either a non-communicating hydrocephalus[] abscess: an intracranial complication of cholesteatoma, The Journal of Laryngology & Otology , 2013 , 127 , 02, 192 CrossRef 5 Vicente Escorihuela García , Ignacio Llópez[]
