Brain abscess persists as a serious diagnostic problem and critical therapeutic challenge since pre-antibiotic era.

After antibiotic agents has been introduced, abscess of the brain seems to be a surgical curable intracranial suppurative disease, although surgical mortality and morbidity due to brain abscess are still distressingly high. Recently, the incidence of brain abscess are gradually increasing.
