Abstract

Arachnoid cysts are benign developmental cysts that occur along the cerebrospinal axis. Brucellar abscesses in the brain are relatively uncommon, with only a few cases reported in the literature. We report here a patient with a brucellar brain abscess and bilateral arachnoid cysts (one complicated with subdural haemorrhage), who was successfully managed with craniotomy and antibiotics.
