1/84. Hepatic abscess following transhepatic drainage of subphrenic abscess.

    A case of an hepatic abscess that developed after percutaneous transhepatic drainage of a subphrenic abscess is presented. The location of the abscess immediately along the tract of the drainage catheter and the similar organisms recovered from bacteriologic culture suggest that the abscess was related to direct contamination along the tract of the drainage catheter. The potential for abscess formation within the liver should be considered in the choice of access route for percutaneous drainage of retroabdominal abscesses. It may be preferable to avoid transhepatic drainage in patients in whom it is anticipated that the catheter drainage will require considerable length of time.

2/84. Cholelithoptysis and pleural empyema.

    We report a case of delayed cholelithoptysis and pleural empyema caused by gallstone spillage at the time of laparoscopic cholecystecomy. An occult subphrenic abscess developed, and the patient became symptomatic only after trans-diaphragmatic penetration occurred. This resulted in expectoration of bile, gallstones, and pus. Spontaneous decompression of the empyema occurred because of a peritoneo-pleuro-bronchial fistula. This is the first case of such managed nonoperatively and provides support for the importance of intraoperative retrieval of spilled gallstones at the time of laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

3/84. Bronchoperitoneal fistula secondary to chronic klebsiella pneumoniae subphrenic abscess.

    We treated a case of bronchoperitoneal fistula secondary to a klebsiella pneumoniae subphrenic abscess. This fistulous communication and the surgical procedure used to treat it are described.

4/84. halitosis: a delayed complication of splenectomy.

    subphrenic abscess is a recognised complication of splenectomy, but fistulation into the stomach is extremely rare. This report describes a delayed complication of splenectomy presenting as offensive and socially disabling halitosis.

5/84. Esophagobronchial fistula following redo Nissen fundoplication.

    Gastrobronchial fistula is a rare complication of antireflux surgery, whereas esophagobronchial fistula as a complication of Nissen fundoplication has, to the best of our knowledge, not been reported previously. We report on a case of esophagobronchial fistula in a patient with left subphrenic abscess following redo Nissen fundoplication. Chest radiographs suggested an unresponsive pneumonia of the left lower lobe. Computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen showed partial consolidation of the left lower lobe and contrast filling of the left bronchial tree from a left subphrenic abscess. CT diagnosis of fistula originating from the region of fundoplication was confirmed by Gastrografin follow-through.

6/84. Sonographic diagnosis of a small fistulous communication between a subphrenic abscess and a perforated duodenal ulcer.

    We report a case of a fistula between a subphrenic abscess and a perforated duodenal ulcer diagnosed by sonography and confirmed by CT. The sonographic findings included a subphrenic fluid collection connected to the anterior aspect of the superior duodenum by a nonpulsatile, anechoic tubular lesion. Manual compression of the upper epigastrium resulted in movement of echogenic debris from the antrum and superior duodenum through the fistulous tract into the abscess.

7/84. CT findings in post-operative subphrenic abscess with teratomatous inclusions.

    A 39-year-old woman presented with abdominal pain after tubal sterilization. CT showed a subphrenic abscess with fatty inclusions owing to laceration or rupture of a mature ovarian teratoma. Although subphrenic abscess is a well recognized post-operative complication, and ovarian teratomas are frequent, a teratomatous inclusion within a subphrenic abscess is a unique finding.

9/84. Perforated Meckel's diverticulum presenting as subphrenic abscess.

    Meckel's diverticulum is known to present with myriad complications. However, its perforation followed by development of subphrenic abscess has not been reported in literature. We report this complication in an eleven-month-old child.

10/84. Right lobar pneumonia complicated by sub-phrenic abscess in a child.

    A 14-year old boy presented with chest and abdominal pain and fever for one week. He had been treated with several antibiotics at home and in a peripheral hospital for respiratory infection. physical examination showed features of right lobar pneumonia and peritonitis. Chest radiograph showed consolidation in the right lower lung field and abdominal ultrasonography showed a subphrenic collection. At exploratory laparotomy, a right subphrenic abscess and general peritonitis without an intra-abdominal focus were found. The abscess was drained and broad-spectrum antibiotics given. death, however, occurred from overwhelming infection. subphrenic abscess complicating pneumonia is unusual but can be the cause of poor response to treatment. The diagnosis should be excluded in a child with pneumonia and persisting abdominal symptoms. Prompt treatment is necessary to avoid morbidity and mortality.
