An Unusual Case of Pyogenic Liver Abscess Caused by Community

The clinical manifestations of pyogenic liver abscesses usually include fever, abdominal pain and nonspecific symptoms- like nausea, vomiting, malaise, anorexia and weight loss. Treatment of pyogenic liver abscesses consists of source control with drainage and antibiotic therapy tailored to the isolated causative organism. We present a case of a
