Infection rarely involves the brain or surrounding tissue. A Brain Abscess is an infectious mass in the brain typically caused by bacteria. Subdural Empyema is a collection of infectious material confined to the subdural space. Treatment for brain infection frequently requires urgent surgical intervention. These infections exert pressure on the brain like hemorrhages, but also can cause brain damage from the toxic effects of the infection.
