Cranial Epidural Abscess

Acute Bacterial Meningitis (MBA) is important causes of morbidity and mortality. Suppurative complications of MBA are frequent, especially in children, but are poorly described in the literature. Epidural abscess usually occurs as a result of otorhinolaryngological infections, cranial trauma or neurosurgical procedures and is rarely associated with MBA. Epidural abscess evolves to presents with focal neurological deficits due to compression process and extension to the brain parenchyma, requiring neurosurgical treatment most of the time. We report a case of meningococcal meningitis complicated with an extensive cranial epidural abscess. Clinical treatment with antibiotics was sufficient for a complete resolution of the disease.
