Invasive Liver Abscess Syndrome is the most frequent of a number of infectious syndromes caused by hypervirulent Klebsiella pneumoniae clones. While incidences peak in Southeast Asia, travels to Asia and Asian ethnicity are independent risk factors for infection in the western countries, although non‐Asians are infected as well. Although challenging, a prompt diagnosis is of utmost importance to ensure adequate treatment and improve overall survival and visual outcome in cases with ocular involvement.
