Pyogenic abscess of the liver
  1. K. Cronin


    The author records the case histories of 27 patients suffering from liver abscess admitted during the period 1946-60 to the Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford. Seventeen were examples of multiple and 10 of single abscess. In most cases the primary source was determinable. Despite there being only one survivor of the 10 patients with a solitary abscess, the author considers the condition easily curable if recognized early.
