The CDC is currently conducting an investigation into a group of uncommon and severe brain abscesses among children in the United States.
Brain abscesses are not typically reportable conditions, so doctors are not required to report them to public health departments. This means that we do not have accurate data on the number of cases that are occurring.
However, Nevada saw a threefold increase in brain abscesses in children in 2022, with 18 cases reported, up from an average of 4-5 cases per year.
