Subdural Empyema by Enterobacter cloacae: Case ReportFunding None.
Infections of the central nervous system are a medical emergency, potentially lethal and associated with increased morbidity and mortality. We present the case of a male with risk factors and clinical deterioration, in which the brain computed tomography scan showed a subdural collection following a head injury, which underwent surgical evacuation revealing a subdural empyema. The culture of the subdural collection yielded a positive result to Enterobacter cloacae.
