A patient with a liver abscess and underlying polycystic renal and liver disease is described. The liver abscess was diagnosed on the clinical findings and accurately localized by ultrasonography. Tube drainage and antibiotic administration resulted in a rapid recovery. The polycystic liver disease, which was previously undiagnosed and asymptomatic, was an unexpected finding at laparotomy.
