Figure 1: (A) Half-Fourier Acquisition Single-Shot Turbo Spin-Echo coronal abdomen magnetic resonance imaging showing hepatic and splenic bright signal intensities suggestive of abscesses (black and white arrows). (B) Half-Fourier Acquisition Single-Shot Turbo Spin-Echo axial abdomen magnetic resonance imaging showing hepatic and splenic bright signal intensities suggestive of abscesses (arrow). (C) Gram stain of splenic pus aspirate (×40) showing Gram-negative bacilli, bipolar stained with a safety pin appearance (circle). (D) Splenic aspirate pus Gram stain (×100) oil immersion field shows many bipolar-stained (pink-coloured) Gram-negative bacilli giving a safety pin appearance.
