Abstract
In a patient with Hyper-IgE-syndrome multiple liver abscesses developed in spite of prophylactic treatment with trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazol. Ultrasound confirmed the clinical diagnosis and percutaneous needle aspiration under ultrasonographic guidance and culture of the aspirated pus allowed specific antibiotic treatment by oral chloramphenicol alone without surgical drainage. The isolated Staph.aureus strain was resistant to trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazol.
