PMID:  8446229     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 41-year-old man with a hepatic abscess due to diverticulitis of the ileum is presented. Drainage of the hepatic abscess and antibiotic therapy resulted in complete recovery. The literature on small bowel diverticulitis and its complications is reviewed. Hepatic abscess is a very rare complication. To our knowledge this is the second case to be described in the literature.
