Pyogenic versus amoebic liver abscesses. Full text is only aviable in PDF. Tratado de Medicina Interna de Cecil-Loeb, 9.

Are you a health professional able to prescribe or dispense drugs? It should be applied only in patients with small abscesses and always considering each individual case 9, Most ALA respond to metronidazole therapy. Image-guided percutaneous procedure amwbiano metronidazole versus metronidazole alone for uncomplicated amoebic liver abscess Review.

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 Treatment with metronidazole was initiated with disappearance amebiajo fever. The patient was discharged with levofloxacin for six weeks and radiologic studies obtained one month after discontinuation of antibiotic, showed decrease in the size of the abscess. He denied having travelled abroad or ameniano contact with immigrants from developing countries.

Nevertheless, this technique lacks the specificity that was initially believed Si continua navegando, consideramos que acepta su uso. All the contents of this journal, except where otherwise noted, is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution License.


Infection by the parasite Entamoeba histolytica causes amebic dysentery and amebic liver abscess, diseases associated with a high morbidity and mortality. 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.

It would be convenient to design epidemiologic studies to know the real prevalence of amebiasis in Spain.

A diagnosis of pyogenic abscess was initially entertained, due to the absence of epidemiologic risk factors and the negative serology for Entamoeba histolytica. The clinical history of patients with amoebic abscesses included: Barbour GL, Juniper K.

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 following variables were taken into account: Print Send to a friend Export reference Mendeley Statistics. On the other hand, subjects with ALA had an epidemiological history of travel or immigration.

In our series, the clinical parameters suggesting pyogenic origin were: The origin of the abscess was biliary in 13 cases, phlebitis of the portal vein in 5, spread of infection from previous liver lesions in 5, haematogenic in 4, by contiguity in 3, and 15 of unknown origin. All manuscripts are sent to peer-review and handled by the Editor or an Associate Editor from the team.

The treatment of patients with PHA consisted of antibiotherapy, drainage and surgery. Prevalencia de abzceso frente a Entamoeba histolytica en la zona norte de la provincia de Huelva. Two people died; one due to peritonitis secondary to multiple perforations in the colon due to amoebic ulcerative colitis Fig.


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.

Eleven out of thirteen lived in Guipuzcoa, one lived in Uruguay was on holiday in Guipuzcoaand another came from Japan but had been living in Guipuzcoa for the previous 6 months. The complications of ALA are: Ind J Gastroenterol ; Estudio de una serie de 45 casos. The treatment for ALA consists of the intraluminal and systemic administration of amoebacides as soon as possible.
