Juxtahepatic Liquid Collections, Peritoneum, and Ascites
Various liquid collections are encountered near the liver. They may result from disease in close proximity to the hepatic tissue such as subcapsular hematomas of the liver or subphrenic abscesses, or they may be the result of diffuse or distant disease such as ascites, pleural effusion, or mediastinal effusion. Most of these juxtahepatic collections will be reviewed only briefly. They will come up again in Chap. 29. However, in this chapter intraperitoneal effusions will be studied in detail.
