Abstract

We report a case of Streptococcus milleri bacteremia and multiple hepatic abscesses secondary to an intrauterine device and a tuboovarian abscess. Hepatic abscess as a complicatin of an intrauterine device has previously been reported only once, with Actinomyces Israelii as the causative agent. Our patient's hepatic abscesses were cured with medical therapy.
