Survival of a liver graft recipient treated for an aspergillar liver abscess

Survival of a liver graft recipient treated for an aspergillar liver abscess

Clinical Infectious Diseases 23(4): 831-832

A case is reported in a 55-year-old woman from France, who underwent a liver transplant in 1989, and who presented in 1992 with persistent fever and asthenia with moderate alteration of liver transaminase levels. Abdominal ultrasonography and computed tomography (CT) showed a fluid collection in the left hepatic lobe measuring 9 x 5.5 cm.
