Abstract

Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) guided drainage is a beneficial and safe therapeutic tool that is used for the treatment of pancreatic mass and pseudocysts. Currently, the application of EUS-guided drainage is increasing for the treatment of different complications such as intraperitoneal abscess drainage following perforated peptic ulcer (PPU) or pararectal abscess. The intraperitoneal abscess with PPU is traditionally treated with surgical treatment. Herein, we report a lesser invasive drainage technique in the form of EUS-guided drainage for the treatment of intraperitoneal abscess.
