Summaries for Epidural Abscess

Disease Ontology : 12 A central nervous system disease that is characterized by a collection of pus (infected material) between the outer covering of the brain and spinal cord and the bones of the skull or spine and is caused by infection in the area between the bones of the skull or spine, and the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord (meninges).

MalaCards based summary : Epidural Abscess, also known as abscess epidural, is related to discitis and arachnoiditis. An important gene associated with Epidural Abscess is CRP (C-Reactive Protein). The drug Vaccines has been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include spinal cord, brain and bone, and related phenotypes are Increased shRNA abundance (Z-score > 2) and Increased shRNA abundance (Z-score > 2)
