Abstract Fever, leukocytosis, and right upper quadrant pain is a common symptom complex seen on every Surgical Service. However, intra-abdominal carcinoma with liver metastases is not usually found as a cause for, or in association with, the above clinical traid.

The pain disappeared slowly over a three-week period, only to recur again one week later, lasting again for three weeks and subsiding. At the time of admission to the hospital, the patient had an exacerbation of the right upper quadrant pain with tenderness,
