Abstract

Perforation of the gall bladder is a rare complication of cholecystitis leads to liver abscess. Hepatic abscess is reportedly associated with a 7% to 40% prevalence of biliary communication. Biliary communication may prevent an abscess from healing after percutaneous drainage and, if so, require additional surgical or other interventional treatment. We report a case of a 40 year – old female who was diagnosed as gallbladder perforation and intrahepatic abscess which was successfully treated by surgically.
