Suppurative pylephlebitis due to pseudodiverticulosis coli.
South Med J. 1984 Sep; 77(9):1165-7.SM

Abstract

Patients manifesting suppurative pylephlebitis and intrahepatic abscess formation secondary to pseudodiverticulosis coli and acute diverticulitis are uncommon, but have very high morbidity and mortality. As illustrated by this case report, the symptoms and signs such a patient manifests are nonspecific and the diagnostic modalities available may be insufficiently sensitive. The therapeutic options available at present are excision and drainage of any detected extrahepatic or intrahepatic septic focus and prolonged antibiotic administration.
