Brain Abscess Brain Science
Some recent research into the diagnosis and treatment of brain abscesses has focused on the treatment of unusual cases, as well as an assessment of current treatment.
- One study examined cases of “cryptogenic brain abscess” in which the symptoms and the medical history of the patient didn’t fit the typical pattern associated with abscesses, and the source of the infection was unknown. Cryptogenic brain abscesses often elude diagnosis, and their prognosis is consequently poor. The goal of the research is to help practitioners to recognize unusual patterns of presentation to improve the outcome in these cases.
- A recent survey looked at the advances made in the diagnosis and treatment of brain abscesses over the past several years with the goal of determining whether or not medical advances have had a positive impact on the treatment of the disease. The survey concluded that advances in imaging technologies, antibiotic treatments, and neurosurgery techniques have led to significantly improved prognosis for brain abscess patients.
