Pyogenic liver abscess: a complication after Primary Obesity Surgery Endolumenal (POSE) procedure

A 59-year-old woman with history of breast cancer and tuberculosis was referred to our hospital complaining of abdominal pain, distention and feeling feverish. A triphasic CT scan showed several cystic liver lesions, with a 110x72mm septate lesion in segments II-III with infiltrative morphology, as well as mediastinal and paraaortic lymph nodes(Image 1). A malignant etiology could not be ruled out.

Authors: Feng Z, Feng Z, Han J, Cheng W, Su B, Mo J, Feng X, Feng S, Chen G, Huang P, Huang L, Cui Z Abstract Shenling Baizhu additive powder (SLBZ-AP), a formulation of a variety of natural medicinal plants, has clinical efficacy in treating cancers in previous studies. We explored the effect of SLBZ-AP in bone metastasis of lung cancer (BMLC) mice, and the possible mechanism involved was further investigated in the present study. Mice model of BMLC was made and treated with SLBZ-AP. Pain behavioral tests were performed to explore the effect on BMLC-induced pain in mice. TUNEL staining was used to investigate apop...
