Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Tuberculous abscess of the liver is rare. A case is reported and the southern African literature briefly reviewed. The clinical similarities to amoebic and pyogenic liver abscesses and primary or secondary neoplasms of the liver are emphasized. Laboratory tests and hepatic scintiscans may not assist in differentiating between these conditions.
