OBJECTIVES To assess whether chronic glycemic control and stress-induced hyperglycemia, determined by the gap between admission glucose levels and A1C-derived average glucose (ADAG) levels adversely affects outcomes in diabetic patients with pyogenic liver abscess (PLA). METHODS Clinical, laboratory, and multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT) findings… CONTINUE READING
