Gas-filled liver metastases caused by Clostridium septicum sepsis
In this case report a 73-year-old male with liver-metastatic colon cancer was admitted to hospital due to severe abdominal pain merely four days after receiving chemo­therapy including epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitors. An acute computed tomography revealed gas-filled liver metastases with two possible diagnoses of either a rapid tumour response resulting in tumour necrosis or severe bacterial infection involving liver metastases. Moreover, the patient had an anaerobic infection with Clostridium septicum, and despite relevant treatment he died within 12 hours after admission.
