A 15-year-old adolescent boy presented to the emergency department with altered mental status and neurological deficits. The differential diagnosis of an adolescent presenting with these symptoms is extensive and challenging. A key clinical finding was the patient's forehead swelling. An extensive laboratory and imaging workup was performed which confirmed the diagnosis. Ultimately, a more detailed history was obtained which led to the inciting cause of his symptoms.
