AbstractGas-forming pyogenic liver abscess (GFPLA) is considered to be a very severe form of PLA and carries a high mortality. Klebsiella pneumoniae is the most common pathogen responsible for the disease, whereas cases where Salmonella is cited as the cause are very uncommon. We report the first case of a 53-year-old lady suffering from GFPLA due to Salmonella, who was successfully treated with surgical drainage. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of GFPLA caused by Salmonella enteritidis to be reported in the English literature. © 2013.
