Liver abscess

Liver abscess is a purulent lesion of the liver caused by bacteria, fungi, histolytic amoeba and other microorganisms. If not actively treated, the mortality can be as high as 10% ~ 30%. There are abundant pipeline systems in the liver, including biliary system, portal system, hepatic arteriovenous system and lymphatic system, which greatly increases the probability of microbial parasitism and infection. Liver abscess can be divided into three types. Bacterial liver abscess is often a mixed infection caused by a variety of bacteria, about 80%, amoebic liver abscess is about 10%, and fungal liver abscess is less than 10%.
