Medicine, 61pp. The patient remained afebrile for 48 hours with subsequent recurrence of the high temperature. Smibiano of a new bicolores latex agglutination test for immunological diagnosis of abscesso amebiasis. Continuing navigation will be considered as acceptance of this use. Med Clin Barc ; 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 and drainage of ALA is controversial. Hughes M, Petri W. Hospital de la S. Si continua navegando, consideramos que acepta su uso. Diagnostic percutaneous aspiration is rarely needed. 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.

Chest, 79pp. 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 ALA is most common in men and usually locates in the right lobe of the liver. 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.

The diagnosis of ALA was confirmed after identifying motile forms of Entamoeba histolytica in the liver aspirate, with negative culture for bacteria Fig. Full text is only aviable in PDF.

In the present case, the early determination, in the sixth day of the disease, could be the cause of the initial negative result. The antibiotic regimen was changed to imipenem. J Hepatol ; The percutaneous aspiration can cause the superinfection of the ALA, so hepqtico should be avoided in those cases with no indication.


Immunology of the amebic liver abscess. Subscribe to our Newsletter. Piperaciline-tazobactam was added, with resolution of fever and marked improvement in the patientacute;s condition.

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. A diagnosis of pyogenic abscess was initially entertained, due to the absence of epidemiologic risk factors and the negative serology for Entamoeba histolytica.

The complications of ALA are: Med Clin ; Gastroenterol Hepatol ; 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.

This is probably what happened in our case, when the negative serology associated to the absence of epidemiologic risk factors misled to the diagnosis of pyogenic abscess, and subsequently, an early percutaneous drainage was performed.

Print Send to a friend Export reference Mendeley Statistics. Cellular immunity is important for the control of infection and the development of protective immunity after an invasive infection. 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, It has also been reported in imunosuppressed patients, HIV patients, patients on corticosteroids or suffering from chronic infections like tuberculosis or syphilis and patients who have undergone post-traumatic splenectomy.


He denied respiratory symptoms or changes in bowel habit. 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.

A second blood cultures were sterile.

SNIP measures contextual citation impact by wighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field. In the case of amebic liver infection, the role of humoral immunity in protection has heatico been well established but it is important in seroidemiological studies and for diagnostic methods. There was no need for a second percutaneous drainage. Amjbiano Infecc Microbiol Clin ; HBs Ag carrier with simultaneous amebic liver absceso and acute hepatitis E.

Serum tests are usually very helpful in the diagnosis of the disease. The case that we describe could be considered an autochthonous case of ALA, related to the increasing number of cases diagnosed in Spain.

Other types of articles such as reviews, editorials, special articles, clinical reports, and letters to the Editor are also published in the Journal. Gammagraphy with gallium reveal “cold” lesions with peripheral rim enhancement, unlike in the case of a pyogenic abscess that appear as a capturing lesion.

Hepatido ALA is uncommon in developed countries like Spain in the absence of an epidemiologic history of exposure, such as travelling to endemic countries, contacting with immigrants from regions of endemicity, or belonging to a risk groups.
