Immunology of the amebic liver abscess. Asymptomatic carrier of hepatitis B surface antigen HBsAgwith normal liver profile. There is often leukocytosis and abnormal liver profile. The ALA is most common in men and usually locates in the right lobe of the liver. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.

Med Clin Barc ; Diagnostic percutaneous aspiration is rarely needed. SRJ abscesp a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same.

In the case that we report the percutaneous aspiration was required because of false negative serology for amebiasis and the absence of epidemiologic risk factors. The amebic liver abscess ALA has a worldwide incidence of 50 cases per year 1. Chest, 73pp.

Thoracic complications of amebic abscess of the liver. The possibility of ALA should be entertained even in the absence of history of exposure, and serology should be repeated in suspected hepayico with an initially negative result. The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two receding years.


J Clin Microbiol ; HBs Ag carrier with simultaneous amebic liver absceso and acute hepatitis E.

Evaluation of a new bicolores latex agglutination test for immunological diagnosis of hepatic amebiasis. Treatment with metronidazole was initiated with disappearance of fever. There was no need for a second percutaneous drainage. An early and accurate diagnosis avoids a higher morbi-mortality, as the treatment for ALA differs from that of the pyogenic abscess. The percutaneous aspiration can cause the superinfection of the ALA, so it should be avoided in those cases with no indication.

A diagnosis of pyogenic abscess was initially entertained, due to the absence of epidemiologic risk factors and the negative serology for Entamoeba histolytica. The lack of findings consistent with pyogenic abscess negative gram staining and culture leads to the diagnosis of amebic abscess.

The diagnosis of ALA was confirmed after identifying motile forms of Entamoeba histolytica in the liver aspirate, with negative culture for bacteria Fig. Current concepts in parasitology: The complications of ALA are: Nevertheless, there are no pathognomonic findings for ALA 2.

Departamento de Medicina Aparato Digestivo. A short review of the pathogenesis, clinical signs, diagnosis and management of the entity is included. Other types of articles such as reviews, editorials, special articles, clinical reports, and letters to the Editor are also published in the Journal. The increase of the number of cases in the absence of epidemiologic risk factors in our country, as derived from the increasing number of cases lately reported, and the present case, lead to consider the existence of autochthonous cases.

The Journal is published both in Spanish and English. Medicine, 61pp. The aim of the treatment is to treat invasive liver infection and eradicate colonic colonization.


CiteScore measures average citations received per document published. 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 You can change the settings or obtain more information by clicking here.

The antibiotic regimen was changed to imipenem. Piperaciline-tazobactam was added, with resolution of fever and marked improvement in the patientacute;s condition.

The microbiologic diagnosis is based on the detection of the parasite in the abscess aspirate, although this is an uncommon finding due to the necrotic nature of the abscess The abdominal pain improved, but the patient remained with high temperature.

Ind J Gastroenterol ; We report a case of an amebic abscess, initially unsuspected due to the absence of epidemiologic risk factors and the negative serology for amebiasis, in the early stages of the disease.

Service of Digestive Diseases. Abdominal ultrasonography and computed tomography showed a hypodense collection, 7,5 x 5 cm in diameter, in segment II of the left lobe of the liver, heterogeneous and with rim enhancement, protruding from the liver surface.

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, N Engl J Med,pp. Continuing navigation will be considered as acceptance of this use.
