Tuberculous abscess of the liver is rare and delay in diagnosis is common. The case of a 66-year-old Singaporean Chinese female with tuberculous liver abscess is reported. The abscess had an unusual septated ('honeycomb-like') ultrasonographic and computed tomographic appearance and the diagnosis was made with difficulty from material aspirated from the hepatic lesion.
