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 subdural empyema and cauda equina syndrome. An important gene associated with Epidural Abscess is CRP (C-Reactive Protein), and among its related pathways/superpathways is Selenium Micronutrient Network. Affiliated tissues include spinal cord, heart and kidney.
