Intra-abdominal infections are a common reason for infectious disease consultation.

These infections span the spectrum from localized organ space infections to diffuse peritonitis. Intra-abdominal infections occur in various intraperitoneal and extraperitoneal locations depending on the source. Diverticulitis, appendicitis, pancreatitis, abscesses, infections related to peritoneal dialysis, and other less common intra-abdominal infections are also reviewed. Diagnosis and treatment of specific conditions are covered.
