Abstract

A rapid and excessive enlargement in occipito frontal circumference (OFC) as the only manifestation of multiple cerebral abscesses in infancy is extremely rare. A 2-month-old asymptomatic infant presenting with increasing OFC is described. Surgical drainage of the cerebral abscesses followed by prolonged antibiotic therapy resulted in complete recovery.
