CONTACT AN ATLANTA MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEY
Failure to diagnose a brain abscess in a timely manner is a serious medical emergency. A brain abscess is a special type of neurosurgical emergency that can cause brain injury leading to death if not diagnosed and treated promptly and properly. Fatalities are the norm when a brain abscess is left untreated.
With correct treatment and care, a brain abscess can be brought under control with no lasting harm done. Treatment will probably involve aspiration of the fluid in the abscess with a long needle, followed by antifungal or antibiotics or antifungal drugs, and perhaps steroids or diuretics.
