Abstract In the present paper, we report an extremely rare case of a 4-year-old girl who developed a frontal lobe intracerebral abscess following adenotonsillectomy. This was diagnosed by computerised tomography at scan 21 days post-tonsillectomy when she presented with bilateral sixth nerve palsies. We believe that intracranial complications should be considered in any patient who present with headache or vomiting following tonsil surgery, especially if the patient has a spiking pyrexia.
