Abstract

Percutaneous abscess drainage has been successfully used in the treatment of hepatic abscesses. We present a case of a posttraumatic pyogenic liver abscess treated by CT-guided percutaneous catheter drainage with an unusual complication of a hepatobronchial fistula. Patient management and the subtle roentgenographic features of this case are presented. Early signs of hepatobronchial fistula including paroxysms of coughing and a peculiar metallic taste during the performance of an abscessogram are reported.
