Liver abscess was a bacterial infected disease. Liver abscess could be described as Gas-forming and non-Gasforming. There was high prevalence of liver abscess in Asia, especially in Taiwan, Singapore and Korea. The patient was a 48-year-old Taiwanese woman who admitted to our hospital with abdominal pain for 1 week. After abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan, a large gas forming abscess was presented (15.7 × 13.6 × 17.6 cm). Klebsiella pneumoniae was cultured from pus and blood. The patient was treated with antibiotics and status post (s/p)-pig tail drainage for two times. Gas-forming liver abscess was a disease with high mortality rate and induced bacteremia. Therefore, Gas-forming liver abscess was thought important and has to be treated immediately
