Abstract

Hepatic cysts are the most common extrarenal manifestations of adult polycystic kidney disease, but the hepatic cyst infection in a patient with polycystic kidney disease is rare. The infection may remain localized or may be followed by acute cholangitis or septicemia. The best management for infected hepatic cyst is drainage in combination with antibiotic therapy. We experienced a case of infected hepatic cyst in a patient with polycystic kidney disease in a 46-year-old man receiving hemodialysis. He presented with fever and abdominal pain and was found to have an infected liver cyst. Treatment with antibiotics and percutaneous drainage of the cyst resulted in clinical improvement. Thus, we report a case of infected hepatic cyst in a patient with polycystic kidney disease with review of the literature.
