Pyogenic liver abscess secondary to asymptomatic sigmoid diverticulitis.
Ann Surg. 1976 Aug; 184(2):241-3.AnnS

Abstract

A patient with multiple pyogenic abscesses in both lobes of the liver secondary to asymptomatic sigmoid diverticulitis is presented. The rarity of this illness is noted. It is suggested that barium enema be performed in patients who present with pyogenic liver abscess of unknown etiology because of the association with asymptomatic sigmoid diverticulitis.
