Diagnosis of a left subphrenic abscess after splenectomy is often difficult. C.T. scanning was used to establish the diagnosis in 5 patients with subphrenic abscesses. The examination is simple and gives valid results. Needle aspirations, controlled by scanning, can confirm the diagnosis or be used for drainage of the abscess.
