A 48-year-old man presented with fevers, chills, weight loss, multiple liver masses, and several superficial and deep venous thromboses in lower extremities. Cancer work up was negative. A liver biopsy grew Fusobacterium nucleatum. To our knowledge, F. nucleatum infection presenting with multiple liver masses and Trousseau-like syndrome has not been reported earlier.
