Abstract

Hepatic abscesses are rare in newborns and their diagnosis is difficult and delayed, as the symptoms are non-specific. Portal vein thrombosis and cavernoma formation are rare complications following neonatal liver abscess. We report a neonate who presented to us as ongoing sepsis who on ultrasonography was found to have hepatic abscess with portal vein thrombosis. Prolonged antibiotic treatment led to resolution of the hepatic abscess.
