BUSTOS B., Raúl  y  CORDERO S., Lorena. Solitary pyogenic liver abscess in a premature infant. Rev. chil. pediatr. [online]. 2001, vol.72, n.5, pp. 449-453. ISSN 0370-4106.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0370-41062001000500009.

Hepatic abscess in the neonatal period is a rare but serious disorder. We report the clinical and radiological course of a solitary pyogenic liver abscess in a very low birth weight premature neonate, probably caused by a complication of umbilical venous catheterization. The patient recovered uneventfully following percutaneous drainage using ultrasound guidance and antibiotic therapy. We also review the clinical features, diagnosis and management of this condition

Palabras llave : liver abscess; premature neonate; umbilical vein catheterization.
