Ruptured Liver Abscess in Neonates: Report of Two Cases
Keywords:Neonatal hepatic abscess, Parietal wall, Rupture
Neonatal hepatic abscess is a rare disease seen mainly in preterm following umbilical catheterisation. Liver abscess in term neonates without any predisposing factor is still rarer and only few cases have been reported in the literature. Here we report two cases of liver abscess in term neonates presenting with abdominal mass due to rupture.
