Resection of multiple nocardial brain abscesses: diagnostic role of computerized tomography

Resection of multiple nocardial brain abscesses: diagnostic role of computerized tomography

Neurosurgery 4(4): 315-318

A case of multiple brain lesions is presented, in which computerized tomographic (CT) scan suggested the presence of brain abscesses rather than metastatic tumours. Two multiloculated abscesses were found and totally removed during one operation. Nocardia asteroides was identified as the infecting organism and sulphisoxazole therapy was initiated.
