Abstract A case of multiple cerebral abscesses caused by actinomyces is reported in a 37 year old male with mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the right lung. In conjunction with penicillin, sulfonamide and erythromycin, the patient underwent stereotactic surgery for aspiration of the brain abscesses under (CT). The bacteria, considered to originate from the right lung, were identified from the abscess material obtained at surgery. Using proper therapy to control infection and intracranial pressure is important. A lon g term follow up with frequent computerised tomography evaluation has been conducted and the patient outcome has been successful recovery. Copyright 2001 Harcourt Publishers.
