Abstract

In this article we describe the cranial computerized tomography findings of an infant with congenital toxoplasmosis, which was performed because she showed an atypical clinical course consisting of meningitis and multiple cerebral abscesses. In this case the cranial computerized tomography allowed the diagnosis of hydrocephalus and multiple cerebral abscesses, and guided the therapeutic approach. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd.
