TUMORS OF THE BRAIN AND INFLAMMATION, Abscess, etc. Abscess.





Category: Diseases of The Nervous System

Causes. This is always secondary and comes from some other part of the
body. It comes often in young and middle life and is more common in males
than in females. The most frequent cause is inflammation of the ear and
the next is from fracture of the skull bones. It may be large or small.

Symptoms. May come slowly or quickly. After an injury to the head the
symptoms may come on suddenly such as intense headache, delirium,
vomiting, chills, high fever, and sometimes convulsions, and a very deep
seeming sleep (coma). In chronic cases the symptoms are not so severe.

Treatment. An operation if the abscess can be reached. If not, an ice bag
should be applied to the head; quiet the distress with narcotics.
