We report a case of a 51-year-old Thai patient with Klebsiella-associated liver abscess evaluated at our institution with acute febrile illness and no other specific clinical symptoms. Presepsin, a novel sepsis biomarker was used to aid in rapid diagnosis of bacterial sepsis. The patient was treated successfully with antibiotics. Percutaneous drainage was not performed due to the size of the abscess.
