New concepts of amebic liver abscess derived from hepatic imaging, serodiagnosis and hepatic enzymes in 67 consecutive cases in San Diego. Nevertheless, this technique lacks the specificity that was initially believed Enfermedades infecciosas de los pulmones. In developed countries such as the United States, it is unusual and is most commonly seen in immigrants from and travelers to developing countries 2. There was no need for a second percutaneous drainage.

Services on Demand Article. Molecular genetic techniques and new experimental models have increased the knowledge on the pathogenesis of amebiasis.

Absceso hepatico amebiano.

The risk of rupture is higher in left-lobe abscesses, due to the smaller size of this lobe and the lack of space for a growing mass 2.

A short review of the pathogenesis, clinical signs, diagnosis and management of the entity is included. Rev Esp Enferm Dig ; Chest, 79pp.

Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre. Gastroenterol Clin North Am ; It would be convenient to design epidemiologic studies to know the real prevalence of amebiasis in Spain. There were also radiologic findings of chronic liver disease without portal hypertension Fig 1. In the case of amebic liver infection, the role of humoral immunity in protection has not been well established but it is hepstico in seroidemiological studies and for diagnostic methods. Its adequate understanding, together with the knowledge on the molecular biology and genetics of the parasite and of the host’s immune mechanisms will allow the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic tools as well as the development of an effective and safe vaccine for eliminating the disease.


The epidemiology in Spain is unknown.

Furthermore, the Journal is also present in Twitter and Facebook. J Clin Microbiol ; Chest, 73pp. En Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine. Are you a health professional able to prescribe or dispense drugs? Treatment of parasitic infections of travelers and inmigrants.

The treatment of pleuropulmonary amebiasis with metronidazole. All manuscripts are sent to peer-review and handled by the Editor or an Associate Editor from the team. Indications for aspiration of liver abscesses are the need to rule out a pyogenic abscess; bacterial coinfection of ALA, large abscesses with a diameter of more than 5 cm, the prevention of rupture of left-lobe abscesses, the failure to respond clinically to drug therapy within 5 to 7 days and the threat of imminent rupture 2,15, There is often leukocytosis and abnormal liver profile.

The radiological findings are those of a liver abscess and consist of a low density collection on CT or a hypoechogenic lesion on ultrasonography, with posterior acustic shadowing and inner echos that mobilize with postural changes.


The lack of findings consistent with amibiaano abscess negative gram staining and culture leads to the diagnosis of amebic abscess. Manuscripts will be submitted electronically using the following web site: The possibility of ALA should be entertained even in the absence of history of exposure, and serology should be repeated in suspected cases with an initially negative result. The percutaneous aspiration can cause the superinfection of the ALA, so it should be avoided in those cases with no indication.

In the present case, the early determination, in the sixth day of the disease, could be the cause of the initial negative result.
