A patient with congenital x‐linked agammaglobulinemia, who had two separate episodes of an apparent bacterial purulent hepatic triaditis in the absence of any known local predisposing factors, is presented. These episodes may reflect the increased susceptibility of an immunodeficient patient to bacterial infections. This case demonstrates the need to consider hepatic involvement in the work‐up of fevers of undetermined origin in immunodeficient patients, even in the absence of any radiologic or sonographic evidence of mechanical biliary tract obstruction.
