Abstract


Intracranial lesions frequently occur in association with congenital malformation of the heart. Intracranial abscess and cerebral thrombosis
are the two most serious complications of the brain due to congenital cyanotic heart disease. We reported a case of brain abscess occurring in patients with double outlet right ventricle (DORV). The identification of focal infection and appropriate treatment with parenteral antibiotics,steroid, antiplatelet and anticonvulsant improved patients clinically.

Keywords: brain abscess; congenital; double outlet right ventricle
