Gas forming liver abscess (GFLA) though rare is seen in diabetic patients. Rupture of such abscesses usually requires surgical intervention. These cases are associated with high morbidity and mortality due to sepsis. Tuberculous liver abscesses are more often silent in presentation. GFLA formed in the background of a tuberculous liver abscess is rare. We present a case of ruptured GFLA with underlying tuberculous pathology in a normoglycemic patient. The abscess was managed by image guided intervention. A brief case report along with review of literature is presented. View Full-Text
