Although a proportion of pyogenic liver abscess may originated from colonic mucosal lesions, the prevalence of colonic neoplasm in the patients with pyogenic liver abscess are still not evaluated yet. Thus, our group will find the prevalence of colonic neoplasm in the group of cryptogenic pyogenic liver abscess by colonoscopic examination.

Condition Phase

Study Type: Observational [Patient Registry]
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Target Follow-Up Duration: 3 Months
