There have been a number of reports of brain abscess suggesting an odontogenic etiology after dental treatment procedures or oral infections, but the diagnosis was mainly by exclusion rather than based on evidence. We present a case of a brain abscess due to Strepto-coccus constellatus in a 27-year-old-immunocompetent woman who underwent extraction of the primary molar and eradication of a radicular cyst some weeks before.
