Abstract

Chronic subdural intracranial empyema is a rare form of central nervous system infection. We report 4 cases and discuss clinical features, treatment options, and prognosis of this infection. The symptoms of chronic subdural intracranial empyema are nonspecific, and the diagnosis can be confirmed by computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging scans. Surgical removal of the empyema may be associated with temporary paralysis but the medium long-term outcomes of surgical treatment are excellent.
