Perforated gastric ulcers have variable presentations. Most cases present with extraluminal air, pancreatitis, or lesser sac abscess. Other unusual cases may be associated with pneumopericardium, subcutaneous emphysema, splenic abscess, tension pneumothorax, gastropleural fistula, gastrobronchial fistula, gastropancreatic fistula, gastroenteral fistula, and penetration into the heart and aorta. Subcapsular liver abscess due to perforated gastric ulcer is rare. Here, we report a case of 37-year-old male patient with subcapsular liver abscess in lateral segment of left hepatic lobe due to a penetrating prepyloric gastric ulcer.
