The majority of patients with a brain abscess require antibiotic treatment and periodic check-ups with magnetic resonance imaging or scanning .
In some patients, surgical intervention is necessary to evacuate the lesion (by means of aspiration and drainage of the abscess, stereotaxic or open, depending on the location, characteristics, etc.).
Antibiotic treatment begins with a series of drugs to treat the most common pathogens, according to the patient's age and history of disease. Depending on the results of the culture, it can be modified later.
