Winnicott and O’Flynn present the case of a six-year-old at death, who had been under observation at the Queen’s Hospital for Children for several years. Besides the odd complaints from which she suffered, it was always felt that some more important disease might be present. The child always did well in hospital and at the convalescent home. Later, acute symptoms pointed directly to intracranial disease, and tuberculous meningitis was expected. A postmortem report revealed a large abscess in the right frontal lobe of the brain, involving the whole anterior half of the right hemisphere, and extremely congested kidneys.
