Brain Abscess Treatment & Diagnosis Errors

A brain abscess is a pus-filled swelling in the brain caused by an infection and is regarded as a medical emergency. This is due to the potential of the abscess rupturing and the swelling caused by the abscess which can disrupt the blood and oxygen supply to the brain.

Types of Brain Abscess Treatment & Diagnosis Errors

If left untreated, a brain abscess can cause permanent brain damage and can be fatal, therefore prompt diagnosis and treatment is vital. Errors in the treatment and diagnosis of a brain abscess can include:

  • A delay or failure in providing antibiotics
  • Failure to adequately drain a brain abscess
  • A delay in conducting brain scans
  • Failure to diagnose a reoccurring brain abscess
  • A delay in carrying out surgery to drain the abscess
  • And other brain abscess errors 

If you or a loved one has suffered from a delay in diagnosis and treatment of a brain abscess, resulting in further deterioration of health and or long term injury, may be able to assist.
