The classical symptomatology of PLA fever, shivering, and pain in the lower right abdomen with or without hepatomegaly, of subacute presentationoccurs in a small percentage of patients.

Introduction The incidence of pyogenic liver abscess PLA ranges from 1. In blood tests in amoebic infections there is often a moderate increase of alkaline phosphatase; icterus is rare and, when present, moderate. Patients suffering with ALA were treated with metronidazole and paramomycin as a first choice. The diagnosis of ALA was confirmed after identifying motile forms of Entamoeba histolytica in the liver aspirate, with negative culture for bacteria Fig.


Overall mortality was related to the diseases that needed surgical treatment acute cholecystitis, obstructive icterus, infected hydatid cyst in the liver, peritonitis, postoperative biliary stenosis, and carcinoma of the gallbladder. A case of a HBsAg carrier with simultaneous amebic liver abscess has been reported in an area of endemicity for amebiasis and on the background of hepatitis E infection Icterus is often associated with biliary pathology.

The ALA is uncommon in developed countries like Spain in the absence of an epidemiologic history of exposure, such as travelling to endemic countries, contacting with immigrants from regions of endemicity, or belonging to a risk groups.

J Hpeatico Microbiol ; We believe that early percutaneous drainage for collected abscesses bigger than 5 cm may improve symptoms and shorten hospital stay. However, both CT scans and echography may lead to false negatives in abscesses smaller than 1 cm in diameter, in those located ameviano the diaphragmatic dome, and in those in early stages of development.

Some of these cases lacked history of exposure and happened in groups at risk or were considered autochthonous, as the case that we report, that developed on the background of hepatitis B surface antigen HBsAg carrier, with no other factors associated.
