Lung abscess with complications in a lamb
Wright, Heather M.
In most cases of uncomplicated pulmonary abscessation, long-term antibiotic therapy is successful in resolving the infection. However, complications, such as pneumo- and/or pyothorax, sepsis, and septic embolization of other organs, require more intensive and invasive measures. When medical therapy alone is unable to resolve the infection, surgery is indicated to drain or remove the abscess. This article describes a case of lung abscessation in a lamb and highlights imaging characteristics, surgical options, and possible complications.
