Absdeso Universitario 12 de Octubre. Gastroenterol Hepatol amebianoo Gastroenterol Clin North Am ; The amebic liver abscess ALA has a worldwide incidence of 50 cases per year 1. Rev Clin Esp ; 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.

Piperaciline-tazobactam was added, with resolution of fever and marked improvement in the patientacute;s condition. Enferm Infecc Microbiol Clin ; He was admitted to our hospital with a 5-day history amebixno dull and continuous abdominal pain in epigastrium and mesogastrium, sweating, chills and a temperature of up to 39ordm;ordm; C.

Molecular genetic techniques and new experimental models have increased the knowledge on the pathogenesis of amebiasis.


Indications for aspiration of liver he;atico 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 would be convenient to design epidemiologic studies to know the real prevalence of amebiasis in Spain.

Ind J Gastroenterol ; 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. 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.

Evaluation of a new bicolores latex agglutination test for immunological diagnosis of hepatic amebiasis. New concepts of amebic liver abscess derived from hepatic imaging, serodiagnosis and hepatic enzymes in 67 consecutive cases in San Diego. There is often leukocytosis and abnormal liver profile.
