Departamento de Medicina Aparato Digestivo. The aim of the treatment is to treat invasive liver infection and eradicate colonic colonization. A case of a HBsAg carrier with simultaneous amebic liver abscess has been reported in an hepaticl of endemicity for amebiasis and on the background of hepatitis E infection 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.

An early and accurate diagnosis avoids a higher morbi-mortality, as the treatment for ALA differs from that of the pyogenic abscess. The lack of findings amibixno with pyogenic abscess negative gram staining and culture leads to the diagnosis of amebic abscess.

Serum tests are usually very helpful in the diagnosis of the disease. Current concepts in parasitology: 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.


Diagnostic percutaneous aspiration is rarely needed. 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. 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, AJR,pp.

The sensitivity increases in the second to third week of the infection. 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 absxeso the disease.

There are small series of cases and isolated cases described in the literature Two cases of amebic abscess of the liver are described.

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 treatment of pleuropulmonary amebiasis with metronidazole. Infectious Clinics of North America ; Enferm Infecc Microbiol Wbsceso ; A sample of the aspirate was cultured. In the case of amebic liver infection, the role of humoral immunity in protection has not been well established but it is important in seroidemiological studies and for diagnostic methods.

In developing countries like Vietnam, were infection by Entamoeba histolytica is endemic, the annual incidence of amebic liver abscess is 21 cases perhabitants.
