Intracerebral abscesses are encapsulated intraparenchymal infections associated with a high mortality rate. These abscesses can be caused by a number of different organisms ranging from bacteria to fungi, parasites, and even malignancies. The most common causative agent depends on pre-disposing risk factors. In this article, we report a case of a brain abscess caused by Kocuria rhizophila, a pathogen that has not been previously reported to cause cerebral intraparenchymal abscesses.
