Abstract

Abstract IN THIS era of antibiotics, brain abscess is apt to occur less frequently than before, but it does occur and must be coped with. A case of recurring mastoiditis, meningitis and abscess of the right temporosphenoid lobe is reported to remind ourselves of this fact and to point out our approach to adequate drainage of this abscess. REPORT OF A CASE E. H., a 12 year old boy, was admitted to the pediatric service of Dr. N. Einhorn, on Jan. 22, 1947, in a stuporous condition of eight hours' duration. Immediate consultation with Dr. A. S. Tornay, of the neurologic service, and one of us (B.H.S.) confirmed the diagnosis of brain abscess of the right temporosphenoid lobe secondary to chronic suppurative mastoiditis. The patient was directly transferred to our service for operation.On his admission the following history was obtained from the parents: Since an attack of rheumatic fever six
