A 77-year-old men with abdominal pain suffered from gall bladder hemorrhage and liver abcess was admitted for intensive care of severe acute cholangitis. He had hemobilia which was treated by the endoscopic retrograde bile duct drainage. After 2 months treatment with rest for purulent myelitis, he had neoplastic change of liver abcess diagnosed as intrahepatic bile duct cancer by percutaneous core needle biopsy. He underwent surgery as central bisegmentectomy and left the hospital at home 3 months later after rehabilitation for surgical site infection...

With continuing worldwide growth in travel, timely information about the epidemiology of post-travel illness is important. Various travel-related surveillance systems have been established that provide these data. Knowledge about prevalences of important diseases in travelers and migrants can help in the differential diagnosis. On the other hand it has be kept in mind that also rare, but life-threatening diseases can be imported like leptospirosis, viral hemorrhagic fever or amebic liver abcess.

An 18-year-old male with right lower abdominal pain and elevated infection parameters is diagnosed with an abdominal abscess, multiple liver abscesses and a thrombus in his portal vein. This combination of findings leads to the diagnosis 'foie appendiculaire', a complicated form of appendicitis.

Large cystic renal tumours can be confused with hepatic lesions even on crosssectional imaging. Careful clinical, sonographic and imaging analysis is needed for establishing correct diagnosis. We report a case of papillary cystic renal carcinoma in a 60 year old man, which was confused with amoebic liver abcess and was initially drained. Subsequent recurrence of symptoms prompted us to re-evaluate the case and repeat sonography confirmed the extrahepatic origin of mass based on simple observation that the liver and mass were moving separately on inspiration...

Liver abscess is a rare complication of sigmoid diverticulitis and must be considered within the differential diagnosis. We report a case of a male patient, age 42, admitted to our hospital with chief complaints of a dull pain in upper right abdominal quadrant, fever, weakness, diarrhoea and weight loss of approximately 3 weeks duration. Physical examination on initial work-up revealed tenderness on palpation in upper right abdomen, and left iliac fosa and a 39 degrees C fever. Biochemistry showed marked inflammatory syndrome, leukocitosis, increased level of platelets, altered liver function...

Pelvic hydatid cysts, although rare, must be considered when evaluating a pelvic mass in women living in an endemic area. The pelvis may become secondarily involved as a result of a rupture of the cyst in another location or be the only localization of the disease. If the cyst becomes secondarily infected, it may mimic a tuboovarian abscess. A 49-year-old multipara was admitted to the emergency department with the complaint of fever, generalized abdominal pain and distension. Abdominal ultrasound revealed a 4 cm cystic structure in the liver and the gynecological examination was normal...

AIM: Even though Spain has the highest donation rate in the world, our needs cannot be satisfied, specially in younger children. Living-related donor transplant is an alternative in those cases. PATIENTS AND METHOD: We performed a retrospective study of 57 living-related donor transplants performed in our hospital between June 1993 and December 2007. Median age and weight were 1.2 years old (0.5-14.8) and 8.5 kg (5-62). Indications for transplant were as follow: biliary atresia in 42 cases (73...

Acute pancreatitis is frequently associated with the development of local complications: collections, necrosis, pseudocysts and abdominal abscesses. Although the development of liver abscesses has been linked to bile duct obstruction or abdominal surgery in patients with chronic pancreatitis, there are few descriptions of liver abscesses associated with an episode of acute pancreatitis. We report the case of a 45-year-old man with a first episode of severe acute alcoholic pancreatitis, complicated with thrombosis of the right portal branch, liver abscess and intrahepatic biliary fistula...

AIMS: To describe the diagnosis and therapeutic aspects of amebic liver abscesses. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective study of 46 cases of amebic liver abcesses seen at Bouaké Teaching Hospital during the period from January 1997 to June 2002. RESULTS: Three clinical pictures were carried out: painful and feverish hepatomegaly (n=28, 60.9%), fever with pain of the right hypochondrium (n=3, 6.5%) and diffuse acute peritonitis (n=15, 32.6%)...

We report the case of a 27-year-old man presenting with a hepatic abscess and hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT). The association between HHT and an infectious disease seemed to be induced by arteriovenous malformations and maybe also by a deficit of polymorphonuclear cells, a monocyte oxidative burst and phagocytosis. This diagnosis should be suggested in case of serious infections in young patients. Prevention is based on screening for and destroying infection, antibioprophylaxis and embolization of arteriovenous malformations...

BACKGROUND: Despite its increasing popularity, laparoscopic appendectomy does not put an unanimous end to the answer to the best treatment for appendicitis. Although the postoperative stay is shorter, the wound infection practically does not exist and scars are minimal, some publications question its advantages due to the incidence of intra-abdominal absceses, postoperative analgesia requirements and the recently described "postlaparoscopic appendectomy complication" (PLAC), an intra-abdominal infection, without abscess formation, which develops after laparoscopic appendectomy for non-complicated appendicitis...

This is a metastatic spread of squamous cell lung carcinoma to lungs, liver, lymph node, bone and subcutanous region as multiple abscess-like lesions. A fifty-five years old man admitted to the out-patient clinic with fever, cough, hemopthysis, night sweats, chest pain, abdominal pain and weight loss. In a short period of time abcess like lesions developed in his lungs, liver, lymph node, bone and subcutanous region. Though the clinical presentation is suggestive for an infectious condition, no success to antimicrobial treatment and negative results of microbiological studies have arised a need to further investigations...

We present the case of an 11-year-old female, with a history of colicky pain abdomen fever, and episode of massive hematemesis and melena. The child was presented to the medical emergency with features of shock. Coagulation profile of the child was normal. Ultrasonography demonstrated multiple liver abscess. Repeated endoscopies ruled out the possibility of gastric or upper gastrointestinal causes of bleed where in the possibility of hemobilia, was considered. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography demonstrated the presence of bleeding from the biliary tract...

A 48-year-old woman who had abused alcohol admitted to our hospital because of fever and chest pain. Laboratory data presented inflammation and liver dysfunction. Chest X-ray films revealed multiple mass lesions with air fluid levels. We diagnosed multiple lung abscesses and started treatment with antibiotics. However, her fever did not improve and mass lesions increased. On day 6 of hospitalization, three drainage tubes were inserted percutaneously into the mass lesions under computed tomography (CT) guidance, and alpha-hemolytic streptococcus, peptostreptococcus sp...

The aim of this study was to retrospectively analyze brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings in patients who developed neurologic complications after liver and kidney transplantation. The results in 216 organ transplant recipients, who had brain MRI were evaluated retrospectively. We performed 187 brain MRI on kidney recipients and 29 liver recipients. Neuroradiologic findings were classified in three groups: group 1 findings were related to transplantation; group 2 findings, to chronic parenchymal disease; and group 3 to neither transplantation nor chronic parenchymal disease...

A case involving abcess and necrosis of the round ligament of the liver is described. This type of case is seldom reported in medical literature. Laparaoscopy is a very useful and feasible tool for the diagnosis and treatment of such cases. The video shows an oversized round ligament with necrotic appearance partially blocked by the epiplon, gallbladder, and stomach. (This online case report contains a video.).

The authors report two hepatobiliary distomatosis cases on patients living in Senegal and Cape Verde islands. No similar case has been reported in Senegal so far. The first case was a 41 years old woman who presented enlarged, painful liver with hypereosinophilia. There was no fever. Ultrasound and CT Scan demonstrated the presence of three poorly limited and heterogeneous masses, located on the liver right lobe. The percutaneous biopsy was not suggestive. Because of the fear ofhepatocellular carcinoma, a hepatectomy was performed and eosinophilic abcesses were found in the piece of resected liver with Fasciola eggs...
