Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The liver parenchyma and biliary tree may be involved in infections caused by bacteria, fungi and parasites. These occur by spread from contiguous organs, hematogenous seeding, or by toxic effects from distant infections and their treatment. The clinical presentations of these infections vary from no symptoms to hepatitis, abscess, granulomas, biliary obstruction, and liver failure. This review summarizes the various infections of the liver and biliary tree and their diagnosis and treatment.
