Brain abscess is the second major bacterial infection. Lung abscess, bronchiectasis, bacterial endocarditis and, particularly in children, congenital heart disease with right-to-left shift, are common sources of the infection. Blood-borne abscesses are usually multiple in the distribution of the terminal branches of major arteries. The infection may reach the brain from the paranasal sinuses, mastoid, or teeth. These abscesses are usually solitary in the frontal or temporal lobes or cerebellum.

Penetrating skull injuries are also important causes of cerebral abscesses.
