Title: Isolated tuberculous hepatic abscess in a non-immunocompromised patient
Authors: Balsarkar, D.
Joshi, M. A.
Keywords: Liver abscess, Tuberculosis, Open drainage
Issue Date: 31-Dec-2000
Publisher: Medknow Publications and Staff Society of Seth GS Medical College and KEM Hospital, Mumbai, India
Citation: Journal of Postgraduate Medicine (ISSN: 0972-2823) Vol 46 Num 2
Abstract: A 38 years old female presented with pain in the epigastrium, jaundice and fever since one and half month. The computerised tomographic scan of the abdomen revealed a multiloculated abscess of the left lobe of liver. The pus drained from the liver abscess at laparotomy showed acid-fast bacilli on microscopy. A detailed search failed to identify any other focus of tuberculous infection. The case has been reported for the rarity of isolated hepatic tuberculous abscess and its presentation with jaundice, a rare feature, and to highlight the importance of microscopic or culture diagnosis in a suspected case of pyaemic abscess.
