Madurella mycetomatis as an agent of brain abscess: case report and review of literature
Paediatrics and Child Health; Pathology and Microbiology
Fungal cerebral abscesses are rare and usually seen in immunocompromised individuals. We report a case and review published literature of Madurella mycetomatis as an agent of cerebral abscess. We found contiguous head and neck infections to be the principal cause of cerebral maduromycosis caused by M. mycetomatis. Early recognition of Madurella spp. as the causative agent is essential to avoid cerebral spread.
