Botryomycosis is a disorder caused by certain nonfilamentous bacteria that produce lesions that resemble actinomycosis. We describe a previously well, young man who initially had apparent hepatitis due to Pseudomonas aeruginosa which spread hematogenously to involve both lungs. He was treated successfully with antibiotics.
