Abstract

We present an unusual case of air-containing liver abscess demonstrated on plain film and ultrasonography with successful treatment utilizing ultrasound-guided drainage in a patient in septic shock. Although surgical drainage is often indicated, ultrasound-guided catheter drainage along with supportive antibiotic therapy can be a safe treatment alternative in critical patients.
