Pseudomonas luteola is agram-negative bacillus rarely causing human infections. However, Reports have been building up on different types of infections caused by this potentially emerging microorganism. Here we report a case of liver mass with necrosis, sub-phrenic and pleural effusions. P. luteola liver infection was treated successfully as inpatient for few days with imipenem followed by ciprofloxacin. The bacterial isolate was found susceptible to a wide range of antimicrobial agents- but was resistant to colistin.
