Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The primary source of pyogenic liver abscess is undetermined in about 30 percent of cases. Escherichia coli, microaerophilic streptococci and Bacteroides fragilis are among the common pathogens. Some cases can be treated with antibiotics alone; others require surgical management. With improved methods of diagnosis and therapy, the mortality rate is now 10 percent or less.
