Perihepatic abscess caused by dropped appendicoliths following laparoscopic appendectomy: Sonographic findings
Journal of Clinical Ultrasound, 05/11/2012
Black MT et al. – However, on sonography the abscess appeared to be in a perihepatic location. Perihepatic abscess associated with a dropped or retained appendicolith has been rarely reported. Awareness of the possibility of a perihepatic abscess as a complication of laparoscopic appendectomy and use of sonography should result in optimal management of this rare complication.
