The occurrence of combined liver and renal abscess by Candida albicans in an immunocompetent patient is a rare entity. Here, we report a 40-year-old female who presented to the hospital with complaints of fever, right flank pain, vomiting and loose stools. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen revealed liver and renal abscess with contracted left kidney with multiple urinary calculi and bilateral mild to moderate hydroureteronephrosis. Culture of the aspirate from abscess grew C. albicans. Blood cultures and urine cultures were sterile. She was treated with tablet voriconazole and percutaneous drainage of renal and hepatic abscess was done. Fever spikes and pain abdomen subsided after 1 week of therapy. Repeat CT abdomen after 3 weeks showed resolving liver and renal abscess.
