Intracranial Abcess

An intracranial abcess is a closed collection of pus and infection somewhere within the skull. These can be very difficult to treat and patients can be very unwell with this kind of condition.

HBO is recognised to be a useful treatment alongside treatment provided in the hospital, i.e. antibiotics, neurosurgery and possibly intensive care involvement, in some patients. It is not standard and each case is carefully reviewed to decide if worthwhile.
