Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been proven to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of parenchymal infections of the brain. Pyogenic brain abscess, herpes encephalitis. Listeria rhombencephalitis, and Rasmussen’s syndrome are examined in this article. Imaging characteristics, epidemiology, clinical presentations, therapies, and pathologic findings are discussed.
