Hyper immunoglobulin-E syndrome is a rare primary immunodeficiency disease, characterized by the classical triad of recurrent staphylococcal skin abscesses, pneumonia with pneumatocele formation, and elevated levels of serum IgE, usually over 2000 IU/mL. Chronic granulomatous disease, hyper IgE, and complement deficiencies are immunopathologies known to be associated with liver abscesses. We present a 2 ½-year-old boy with liver abscess and associated hyper IgE.
