Bruno G., Caratozzolo E., Massani M., Bonariol L., Recordare A., Antoniutti M., Callegari P., Bassi N.
Amoebic liver abscess is the most common extra-intestinal manifestation of amebiasis with approximately 10% of the world's population infected by this parasite. Actually, incidence of this infection is also increasing in industrialized countries, as a consequence of the more frequent immigration or travelling. Only 3-10% of patients with intestinal amebiasis develop liver abscess. A clinical case of suprainfection of amoebic liver abscess consequent on acute appendicitis is presented.
