Injection sclerotherapy as a cause of Klebsiella pneumoniae peritonitis

J. F. Trotter, W. L. Peterson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We report a case of Klebsiella pneumoniae peritonitis after endoscopic sclerotherapy and discuss its pathogenesis and risk factors. We also review previous cases in the literature and make recommendations for prophylactic therapy. Endoscopists should be aware of peritonitis as a possible complication of endoscopic sclerotherapy.
