Abstract

We report the first case of a healthy 23-year-old female who underwent an interventional radiology-guided embolization of a hepatic adenoma, which resulted in a gas forming hepatic liver abscess and septicemia by. A retrospective review of Clostridial liver abscesses was performed using a PubMed literature search, and we found 57 clostridial hepatic abscess cases. The two most commonly reported clostridial species areand(64.9% and 17.5% respectively).cases carried a mortality of 67.6% with median survival of 11 h, and 70.2% of thecases experienced hemolysis. Allcases were found to have underlying liver malignancy at the time of the presentation with a mortality of only 30%. The remaining cases were caused by variousspecies, and this cohort’s clinical course was significantly milder when compared to the aboveandcohorts.
