Hepatic Abscess Secondary to Stomach Perforation by a Fish Bone: A Rare Cause of Hepatic Abscess

Wenxiu Yu et al. Ann Hepatol.

Abstract

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. Here we report a case of hepatic abscess secondary to stomach perforation by a fish bone.

Keywords: Clinic; Foreign body; Gastrointestinal tract; Perforation; Pyogenic liver abscess.
