Cerebral Abscess

The scans shown are from two immunocompromised patients who presented with high fever and recurrent seizures. The contrast cranial CT of the first patient shows that the patient had a rim-enhancing lesion at the left basal ganglia arrow_1 (Figure 1). A set of cranial MRIs of the second patient also showed multiple contrast enhancing lesions in the right basal ganglia and also a larger one at the left parietal lobe arrow_1 (Figures 2 and 3).
