Abstract

Most of the reported cases of pneumocephalus are related to head trauma but gas containing brain abscess is a rare condition. Three cases of intra parenchymal gas containing brain abscesses have recently been experienced. All of three cases were otogenic origin, but causative organisms could not be found in bacteriological studies. Two cases were improved by pus drainage and total extirpation of abscess cavity with administration of broad spectrum antibiotics, but one case died suddenly during initial stage of brain abscess formation.
