Liver abscess in a preterm neonate

hashem Ezzat Aqrabawi, Najwa William Sonna.

Abstract
Neonatal liver abscess is a very rare condition associated with high morbidity and mortality rates. There seems to be an increasing trend of this rare condition amongst the newborns admitted to neonatal intensive care units. We report a case of liver abscess in a premature newborn that was discovered accidentally on CXR and briefly review the literature and discuss its management.

Key words: Hepatic abscess, umbilical catheterization, prematurity, and necrotizing enterocolitis.
