Abstract

Two children, below 15 years of age, developed brain abscesses after esophageal dilation. They were among 40 children treated for supratentorial brain abscesses during the past 10 years. Pus culture of one of the abscesses was peptostreptococcus, which is a common oropharyngeal flora. Clinicians should be aware of this complication since the prognosis is usually satisfactory after prompt treatment.
