Absceso hepático por Brucella. Descripción de un caso y revisión de la literatura
Brucella liver abscess. Case report and review of the literature
Hepatic involvement in infections caused by Brucella organisms is common but the production of liver abscess is exceptional. Therefore, the most appropriate therapeutic approach is unclear. The use of antibiotics can be effective but in some cases abscess drainage is required. We report here a case of brucellar hepatic abscess and a review of fourteen cases reported in the literature. An emphasis is laid on the clinical, laboratory and radiological findings, treatment, and patient evolution. On the basis of the reported cases a therapeutic approach is proposed.
