A case is reported of a subphrenic abscess 12 months post-laparoscopic cholecystectomy in a 72-year-old male with identification of Actinomyces meyeri and the oropharyngeal commensal Klebsiella ozaenae. The first organism is exceptionally rare following laparoscopic cholecystectomy and is presumed to be a result of inadvertent gallstone spillage. The second organism has not previously been reported in a subphrenic abscess. The etiopathogenesis and management of this condition are presented.
- Actinomyces meyeri
- Actinomycosis post laparoscopic cholecystectomy
