Hepatobiliary infections are commonly encountered in emergency settings ranging from common pathology such as pyogenic abscess to relatively uncommon and rare etiologies. Since extensive literature is already available on imaging of more common bacterial infections, for the sake of focused discussion, this review will discuss radiological appearance of less commonly encountered hepatic infections of fungal, parasitic, viral, and tubercular etiologies. Epidemiological and clinical information remain extremely important for obtaining more accurate presumptive diagnosis. In the era of diverse population migration, a modern-era radiologist must be well versed about the imaging spectrum of liver infections.
