Intracerebral Abscess Associated With the Camino Intracranial Pressure Monitor: Case Report and Review of the Literature
Morton R et al. – To the best of the authors knowledge, this is the first report describing an intracerebral abscess as a complication from an intraparenchymal pressure monitor. Corticosteroid therapy may have constituted an independent risk factor for the Intracranial pressure (ICP) monitor––associated infection, as well as reinsertion of the ICP monitoring device at the same site. That this is the first reported parenchymal infectious complication underscores the safety of this device with respect to infection. When reinsertion of a parenchymal monitor is considered, a new site should be chosen.
