Author information

Department of Gastroenterology, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India.


Infectious complications of endoscopic injection sclerotherapy (EIS) are rare. We report here a case in which pyogenic meningitis and multiple cerebral abscesses developed after a session of EIS. The patient was successfully treated with a combination of parenteral antibiotics and repeated bedside pus aspirations. Prophylactic antibiotics may be considered in such situations for subsequent sessions of EIS.
