There were also radiologic findings of chronic liver disease without portal hypertension Fig 1. Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre. The lack of findings consistent with pyogenic abscess negative gram staining and culture leads to the diagnosis of amebic abscess.
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. It would be convenient to design epidemiologic studies to know the real prevalence of amebiasis in Spain.
Rev Clin Esp ; HBs Ag carrier with simultaneous amebic liver absceso and acute hepatitis E. AJR,pp. Ann Intern Med, 93pp. Medicine, 61pp.
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.
On admission, the temperature was 39ordm; C, his abdomen was tender in the right upper quadrant, with voluntary guarding but negative Murphy and Blumberg signs.

Infectious Clinics of North America ; The treatment of pleuropulmonary amebiasis with metronidazole. The percutaneous aspiration and drainage of ALA is controversial. He did not take any medication. Molecular genetic techniques and new experimental models have increased the knowledge on the pathogenesis of amebiasis. Continuing navigation will be considered as acceptance of this use.
The case that we describe could be considered an autochthonous case of ALA, related to the increasing number of cases diagnosed in Spain.
