Aim: Clinical and Biochemical Profile in Patients of Liver Abscess: A Study from
Tertiary Care Centre in Bihar.
Methods: This cross-sectional research was conducted. Patients who met the inclusion
criteria and provided written informed consent were chosen for the research after
authorization from the institutional ethics committee was obtained. All consenting
people above the age of 18. This research comprised patients who presented with
consistent symptoms of liver abscess and patients who were confirmed with liver
abscess radiologically (Ultrasonography and CT Scan, if necessary). Patients who
refused to provide permission for the research were omitted from the trial.
Results: Alcohol use was the most prevalent risk factor in our research, accounting for
50(50%) of the cases. Diabetes mellitus (DM) was shown to be another substantial risk
factor, accounting for 22% of all cases in the current investigation. Both risk factors
were present in 14% of the cases. The most prevalent symptom was abdominal pain (97
percent), followed by fever (95 percent ). The most prevalent per abdominal
examination finding was hepatomegaly (81%), followed by abdominal pain (73 percent
). Anorexia was discovered in 51% of the patients. As a result of the problems, 13% of
patients had right sided pleural effusion and 7% developed ascitis. Based on
biochemical measures, 81 (81 percent) of 100 patients exhibited TLC counts more than
11000/mm3. ALP levels were elevated in 97 percent of patients. In 75 individuals (75
percent), the INR was raised.
