Bacterial liver abscesses caused by ingested bodies are very uncommon. In the current report, a unique case of a 50-year-old man associated with diabetes mellitus who suffered from sepsis and a liver abscess because of the migration of a fishbone that lodged in the left hepatic lobe is presented. The diagnosis was confirmed by enhanced computed tomography examination of the upper abdomen. The patient subsequently underwent laparoscopic surgery, and was discharged on postoperative day 12 without any complications. The present study discusses the clinical features and treatment of this case.
