Resumen

ALVAYERO MEJIA, Karen Vanessa et al. Brain abscess as a complication of maxillary sinusitis. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2012, vol.84, n.4, pp.406-411. ISSN 0034-7531.

Brain abscess is an uncommon infection in the child, but it may represent a very serious life-threatening risk even if many diagnostic and therapeutic advances are available. Its clinical presentation depends on location and the diagnosis requires a lot of presumption since it may also appear as a complication of frequent infectious processes in the childhood. This is the case of 5 years-old girl suffering frontal brain abscess secondary to maxillary sinusitis. The clinical manifestations, the results of supplementary tests and of the treatment were described.

Palabras clave : brain abscess; maxillary sinusitis; computer axial tomography.
