NCP Nursing Care Plan for Liver abscess. Liver abscess is a relatively uncommon but life-threatening disorder that occurs when bacteria or protozoa destroy hepatic tissue.

A liver abscess occurs when bacteria or protozoa destroy hepatic tissue, producing a cavity, which fills with infectious organisms, liquefied liver cells, and leukocytes. Necrotic tissue then walls off the cavity from the rest of the liver. Liver abscess carries a mortality of 10% to 20%, despite treatment. Liver abscess affects both sexes and all age-groups, although it’s slightly more prevalent in hospitalized children (because of a high rate of immunosuppression) and in females (most commonly those between ages 40 and 60).
