Feedback:  0 comments, 0 ratings

      

Abstract: Cerebral abscesses of odontogenic origin are uncommon. Cerebral abscesses are often caused by cardiac and pulmonary disease or infections such as skin or abdominal infections. However, there have been some reported incidences of cerebral abscesses caused by odontogenic infection. This paper aims to discuss a case report whereby an odontogenic infection was the most probable cause of a cerebral abscess in a paediatric patient.

Clinical relevance: To discuss the importance of oral disease as a potential causative factor for cerebral infection.
