Pyogenic liver abscess is a rare presentation of common bile duct stenosis secondary to chronic calcific pancreatitis. Two cases are described in this report; in both cases, biliary obstruction was present in the absence of jaundice. Successful therapy of the abscesses was accomplished with antibiotics alone and without continuous percutaneous drainage or surgical intervention. Definitive therapy should include eventual surgical correction of the biliary obstruction.
