Department of Gastroenterology, The affiliated Jurong Hospital of Jiangsu University, Jurong, Jiangsu, P.R. China.

Gastrointestinal foreign bodies are commonly encountered in clinical practice. However, although perforation of the gastrointestinal tract by a foreign body is not unusual, the formation of a hepatic abscess as a result of the migration of a foreign body is extremely rare. Patients usually present with atypical symptoms, and the treatment of such pyogenic liver abscesses presents a challenge. Read More

A Retrospective Case-Control Study to Evaluate the Diagnostic Accuracy of Honeycomb Sign in Melioid Liver Abscess.

Am J Trop Med Hyg 2018 Oct;99(4):852-857

Department of Radiodiagnosis, Christian Medical College and Hospital, Vellore, India.

Among pyogenic liver abscesses, melioid etiology is considered in endemic regions in the presence of known health or occupational risk factors. "Honeycomb sign," used to describe an abscess with multiple internal septations dividing the abscess cavity into multiple loculations of comparable sizes on imaging, is a sensitive sign for melioid liver abscess. This is a retrospective case-control study investigating incidence, sensitivity, and specificity of "honeycomb sign" in melioid liver abscess, in a cohort of patients with culture-proven melioidosis infection.

Division of Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Zhejiang University, First Affiliated Hospital, School of Medicine, Hangzhou, China.

Pyogenic liver abscess (PLA) of biliary origin in Southeast Asia mainly occurs in patients with intrahepatic bile duct stone (IBDS) and extrahepatic bile duct stone (EBDS), bilioenteric anastomosis, or biliary stent. IBDS, as an endemic to Southeast Asia, remains a frequent etiology of acute cholangitis and PLA. PLA related to IBDS is characterized by high incidences of PLA recurrence and death related to infection, and difficulties in diagnosis of concomitant cholangicarcinoma. Read More

Severe liver abscess infections caused by hypervirulent clonal-group CG23 Klebsiella pneumoniae have been increasingly reported since the mid-1980s. Strains typically possess several virulence factors including an integrative, conjugative element ICEKp encoding the siderophore yersiniabactin and genotoxin colibactin. Here we investigate CG23's evolutionary history, showing several deep-branching sublineages associated with distinct ICEKp acquisitions. Read More

Hepatic Abscess in a Returning Traveler with Crohn's Disease: Differentiating Amebic from Pyogenic Liver Abscess.

Case Rep Med 2018 29;2018:9593865. Epub 2018 May 29.

Department of Medicine, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

Liver abscess is a rare but serious complication of Crohn's disease. Patients with Crohn's disease are at risk for pyogenic liver abscesses due to immunosuppressive therapy, fistulous disease, and intraabdominal abscesses. Inflammatory bowel disease patients are also known to have a greater prevalence of amebiasis compared to the rest of the population; however, a higher incidence of amebic liver abscess has not been reported.

Denture-Associated Oral Microbiome and Periodontal Disease Causing an Anaerobic Pyogenic Liver Abscess in an Immunocompetent Patient: A Case report and Review of the Literature.

Gastroenterology Res 2018 Jun 31;11(3):241-246. Epub 2018 May 31.

Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Saint Louis University School of Medicine, St Louis, MO, USA.

Pyogenic liver abscesses (PLA) develop from the spread of infection through the portal circulation, biliary infections or arterial hematogenous seeding in the setting of systemic infections. PLA are often poly-microbial and are uncommonly reported to be due to anaerobic species. We report the case of a previously healthy, immunocompetent 63-year-old man with hepatic abscesses as a result of periodontal disease. Read More

Maxillary Teeth Abscesses Result in Atypical Liver Abscesses.

Cureus 2018 Mar 20;10(3):e2353. Epub 2018 Mar 20.

Creighton University, Veterans Affairs Omaha.

Hepatic liver abscesses are often misdiagnosed on initial presentation because pyogenic liver lesions are a rare occurrence in the United States. This leads to a delay in proper treatment and results in increasing morbidity and mortality. Our case report demonstrates the atypical presentation of a hepatic liver abscess in the elderly.

Department of Internal Medicine, Santa Croce and Carle Hospital, Cuneo.

Pyogenic liver abscess (PLA) are space-occupying lesions in the liver associated with high morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study is to review an Italian hospital experience in epidemiological, clinical patterns, and management of PLA.We performed a retrospective, descriptive case series at a single center assessing demographic characteristics, presentation patterns, etiological factors, microbiological etiology, and management for patients treated for PLA between 2000 and 2016.

Hepatobiliary Manifestations and Complications in Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Review.

Gastroenterology Res 2018 Apr 7;11(2):83-94. Epub 2018 Apr 7.

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Medical School of Ioannina, Greece.

Liver and biliary track diseases are common extraintestinal manifestations of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), reported both in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and may occur at any time during the natural course of the disease. Their etiology is mainly related to pathophysiological changes induced by IBD, and secondary, due to drugs used in IBD. Fatty liver is considered as the most frequent hepatobiliary manifestation in IBD, while primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is the most correlated hepatobiliary disorder and is more prevalent in patients with ulcerative colitis.

Pyogenic liver abscess (PLA) is the result of portal vein pyemia, which usually originates from the hepatobiliary system or the gastrointestinal tract. Gram-negative organisms are the most common causative pathogens in PLA. is an anaerobic gram-positive, low-virulence organism that most commonly affects neutropenic patients with hematological malignancy and has not been reported to cause PLA.

Altered Profiles of Gut Microbiota in Klebsiella pneumoniae-Induced Pyogenic Liver Abscess.

Department of Immunology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, 77030, USA.

Intestinal microbiota plays a crucial role in preventing the colonization and invasion by pathogens, and disruption of microbiota may cause opportunistic infections and diseases. Pathogens often have strategies to escape from the colonization resistance mediated by microbiota, but whether they also modulate the microbiota composition is still a topic of investigation. In the present study, we addressed this question using an opportunistic pathogen, Klebsiella pneumoniae serotype K1, which is known to cause pyogenic liver abscess (KLA) in about 30% of mice.
