MedLine Citation:
PMID:  2800855     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of gallbladder empyema associated with multiple complications caused by a delay in diagnosis is presented. Recent literature is reviewed especially emphasizing the clinical presentation with scanty physical signs. Greater awareness of the indolent and chronic presentation might reduce the considerable morbidity and mortality that are associated with delayed operative intervention.
