Abstract

Laparoscopy-guided liver abscess drainage of multiple large formations
A 50-year-old woman was admitted with abdominal pain, vomit-ing, fever and diarrhoea. She had increased white blood cell count and increased level of liver enzymes. A CT scan revealed 13 abscesses in the liver and tests showed Streptococcus anginosus. Investigation showed no entry point for bacteria. The woman underwent laparoscopic investigation, and the abscesses were completely drained preoperatively without installation of catheter in spite of large abscess formations. After 26 days of admittance with antibiotic treatment she was discharged and check-up revealed no re-formation of the abscesses.
