Bacterial flora of liver abscesses in feedlot cattle fed tylosin or no tylosin. (1/293)

Bacterial flora of liver abscesses from cattle fed tylosin or no tylosin and susceptibilities of the predominant bacterial isolates to tylosin and other antimicrobial compounds were determined. Abscessed livers were collected at slaughter from cattle originating from feedlots that had fed tylosin (n = 36) or no tylosin (n = 41) for at least 2 yr, and segments of livers with one or two intact abscesses were transported to the laboratory. Abscesses were cultured for anaerobic and facultative bacteria. Fusobacterium necrophorum, either as single culture or mixed with other bacteria, was isolated from all abscesses. The incidence of subsp. necrophorum, as part of the mixed infection, was lower (P < .05) in the tylosin group than in the no-tylosin group (33 vs 61%). However, the incidence of Actinomyces pyogenes was higher (P < .01) in the tylosin group than in the no-tylosin group (53 vs 10%). Totals of 119 F. necrophorum and 21 A. pyogenes isolates were used for determinations of susceptibilities to bacitracin, oxytetracycline, chlortetracycline, lasalocid, monensin, tylosin, tilmicosin, and virginiamycin. The minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) of antibiotics were determined with a broth microdilution method. The mean MIC of tylosin for F. necrophorum and A. pyogenes were not different between isolates from tylosin and no-tylosin groups. We concluded that continuous feeding of tylosin did not induce resistance in F. necrophorum or A. pyogenes. Also, the higher incidence of mixed infection of F. necrophorum and A. pyogenes in liver abscesses of tylosin-fed cattle suggests a potential synergistic interaction between the two organisms in causing liver abscesses.  (+info)

Analysis by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and PCR of human liver abscess aspirates from patients in China for Entamoeba histolytica. (2/293)

Aspirates of liver abscesses were analyzed for Entamoeba histolytica. PCR detected a gene encoding a 30-kDa protein in all samples but detected the ribosomal DNA gene in only 14 (33.3%) samples. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay detected antigen in 41 (97.6%) samples. PCR analysis of a strain-specific antigen (SSG) revealed that abscesses were caused by various strains.  (+info)

Identification of a major cluster of Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates from patients with liver abscess in Taiwan. (3/293)

Klebsiella pneumoniae has emerged as the leading liver abscess pathogen in Taiwan, with the percentage rising from 30% in the 1980s to over 80% in the 1990s. Most of the patients with K. pneumoniae liver abscess are diabetic and without biliary tract disease. Some patients develop serious extrahepatic complications such as endophthalmitis, meningitis, lung abscess, and necrotizing fasciitis. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) was used for cluster analysis of 96 isolates from patients with liver abscess and 60 isolates from patients with other diseases. A total of 136 PFGE types were identified. Among the 96 liver abscess-associated isolates, 60 (62.5%) were classified in major cluster A. Cluster A included 41 PFGE types (types 1 to 41) which had a genetic similarity of at least 72.4% +/- 9.4%. The PFGE patterns of cluster A strains are so similar that they could have originated from the same ancestor. This study demonstrates that cluster A plays an important role in the high incidence of K. pneumoniae liver abscess in Taiwan.  (+info)

Multilocular pyogenic hepatic abscess complicating ascaris lumbricoides infestation. (4/293)

A 74-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with frequent right flank pain. The multiple multilocular hepatic abscesses were revealed by computed tomography. Radiographs following a barium meal showed a linear filling defect in the ileum consistent with ascariasis. One day after treatment with pyrantel pamoate, an Ascaris was passed in the stool. The pyogenic hepatic abscesses gradually healed with both antibiotics and continuous drainage. After 2 months, he was discharged. In this case, the pyogenic hepatic abscesses were thus considered to have been caused by an inflammation which spread through the portal vein.  (+info)

Chromobacterium violaceum infection in Brazil. A case report. (5/293)

We report the second case of infection with Chromobacterium violaceum that occurred in Brazil. A farm worker living in the State of Sao Paulo presented fever and severe abdominal pain for four days. At hospitalization the patient was in a toxemic state and had a distended and painful abdomen. Chest X-ray and abdominal ultrasound revealed bilateral pneumonia and hypoechoic areas in the liver. The patient developed failure of multiple organs and died a few hours later. Blood culture led to isolation of C. violaceum resistant to ampicillin and cephalosporins and sensitive to chloramphenicol, tetracyclin, aminoglicosydes, and ciprofloxacin. Autopsy revealed pulmonary microabscesses and multiple abscesses in the liver. The major features of this case are generally observed in infections by C. violaceum: rapid clinical course, multiple visceral abscesses, and high mortality. Because of the antimicrobial resistance profile of this Gram-negative bacillus, for appropriate empirical antibiotic therapy it is important to consider chromobacteriosis in the differential diagnosis of severe community infections in Brazil.  (+info)

Synchronous hepatic cryotherapy and resection of colonic primary is a high risk procedure. (6/293)

Thirteen patients underwent hepatic cryotherapy and synchronous colonic resection. Two of the nine patients developed hepatic abscess--this is a rare complication of cryotherapy alone.  (+info)

Unretrieved gallstones presenting as a Streptococcus bovis liver abscess. (7/293)

We describe a case of a delayed liver abscess presenting two years after a laparoscopic cholecystectomy. At exploration, the patient was found to have an unretrieved gallstone as the nidus for the Streptococcus bovis abscess.  (+info)

Isolated tuberculous hepatic abscess in a non-immunocompromised patient. (8/293)

A 38 years old female presented with pain in the epigastrium, jaundice and fever since one and half month. The computerised tomographic scan of the abdomen revealed a multiloculated abscess of the left lobe of liver. The pus drained from the liver abscess at laparotomy showed acid fast bacilli on microscopy. A detailed search failed to identify any other focus of tuberculous infection. The case has been reported for the rarity of isolated hepatic tuberculous abscess and its presentation with jaundice, a rare feature, and to highlight the importance of microscopic or culture diagnosis in a suspected case of pyaemic abscess.  (+info)

Septic metastatic endophthalmitis is a rare but serious disease. Endophthalmitis arising from Klebsiella pneumoniae liver abscess has been reported with diabetes mellitus as a major associated condition, but is rarely seen in patients without diabetes. A non-diabetic patient with liver abscess complained of right eye discomfort and floaters 3 days after admission. Both blood and liver aspirate cultured Klebsiella pneumoniae . The patient was treated initially with systemic and subconjunctival antibiotics followed by intravitreal antibiotics with successful visual salvation. Previous reports from the literature showed poor visual outcome despite treatment and delayed recognition was often the cause. Clinicians should be alert to endophthalmitis whenever a patient with Klebsiella pneumoniae liver abscess complains of ocular symptoms. Urgent ophthalmological assessment should be sought ...
Portal-mesenteric vein thrombosis, pylephlebitis and liver abscesses are rare complications of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The purpose of this case report is to relate an unusual presentation of CD in order to show how conservative treatment could be an appropriate option as a bridge to the surgery, in patients with septic thrombophlebitis and multiple liver abscesses with CD. We report a case of a 25-year-old man with Crohns disease (CD) who developed a superior mesenteric venous thrombosis, multiple liver abscesses and pylephlebitis, diagnosed through abdominal ultrasound and an abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan. The patient was successfully treated with conservative treatment consisting of intravenous antibiotics, subcutaneous anticoagulation and percutaneous catheter drainage of liver abscesses. We reported an unnusual case of pylephlebitis in CD. Until now this association has not been reported in adult patients at onset. We hypothesise that the infection developed as a result of
Liver abscess due to gastrointestinal perforation by foreign bodies is rare. Furthermore, there are few case reports of liver abscess via the portal vein caused by perforation of the lower gastrointestinal tract by a foreign body. A 54-year-old man visited our hospital because of a fever that had lasted for 1 month. There were no physical findings except for the fever. Laboratory tests showed only elevated inflammatory markers. Abdominal contrast-enhanced computed tomography revealed an abscess in the right lobe of the liver and a high-density object in the small intestine. We diagnosed him with liver abscess secondary to intestinal perforation by a foreign body. The patient underwent drainage of the liver abscess and laparoscopic surgery for perforation of the small intestine. A fish bone had perforated the top of Meckels diverticulum, which had been covered by the ileal mesentery. We successfully performed diverticulectomy and removed the fish bone. The patient was discharged without complications on
We present the case of a patient who developed a liver abscess following screening colonoscopy. A colorectal screening program was introduced in the Netherlands in 2014 in order to reduce mortality from colorectal cancer. The patient in this report, a 63-year-old man with no significant medical history, underwent polypectomy of two polyps. Four days afterwards he presented to our emergency department with fever, nausea and vomiting. He was diagnosed with a Klebsiella pneumoniae liver abscess and was successfully treated with antibiotics for 6 weeks. This case highlights one of the risks of screening colonoscopy. Given the high number of colonoscopies due to the colorectal screening programs, we should be aware of complications in this mostly asymptomatic group of patients.. ...
This paper shows that magA is an important virulence gene in invasive K. pneumoniae strains causing primary liver abscess and septic metastatic complications. Disruption of magA in NTUH-K2044 results in complete loss of resistance to serum and phagocytosis, along with a ,105-fold increase in LD50 to mice. The virulence was significantly but not completely restored by complementation using a magA-containing plasmid, suggested that adjacent loci might also be contributing to virulence. Although other genetic loci, including the cps cluster (37), wb cluster (38), and rmpA (39, 40) might also be involved in bacterial virulence, only magA displayed a significantly higher prevalence rate in invasive strains (98 vs. 29%; P , 0.0001). Thus, magA meets the criteria of molecular Kochs postulates (45) for a virulence gene associated with this type of invasive K. pneumoniae disease. Thus, this locus can be used as a marker for rapid molecular diagnosis.. In the present work, our data provided supports for ...
AIM: To determine the predictive factors for early aspiration in liver abscess. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of all patients with liver abscess from 1995 to 2004 was performed. Abscess was diagnosed as amebic in 661 (68%) patients, pyogenic in 200 (21%), indeterminate in 73 (8%) and mixed in 32 (3%). Multiple logistic regression analysis was performed to determine predictive factors for aspiration of liver abscess. RESULTS: A total of 966 patients, 738 (76%) male, mean age 43 ± 17 years, were evaluated: 540 patients responded to medical therapy while adjunctive percutaneous aspiration was performed in 426 patients. Predictive factors for aspiration of liver abscess were: age ≥ 55 years, size of abscess ≥ 5 cm, involvement of both lobes of the liver and duration of symptoms ≥ 7 d. Hospital stay in the aspiration group was relatively longer than in the non aspiration group. Twelve patients died in the aspiration group and this mortality was not statistically significant ...

Antibacterial therapy plays a leading role in the tactics of treatment and clinical course of liver abscess. The peculiarities of etiopathogenesis and clinical picture of the disease demand a differential approach to the use of antibiotic therapy with further observation of clinical dynamics and its effectiveness. In a complex treatment of liver abscesses antibiotic therapy was conducted empirically taking into account the most probable etiology of infectious process. Antibiotic therapy was conducted before the operation to reduce contamination of operating wound by the infectious agent, and henceforth, according to the results of bacterial seeding from the nursery of liver abscess and microbial sensitivity test. Nowadays, the choice of antibiotic therapy has a variety of mandatory conditions, which are caused by the etiology and clinical picture during the course of liver abscess.. ...

Pyogenic liver abscesses are rare in children. In pediatric patients, altered host defences seem to play an important role. However, pyogenic liver abscess also occurs in healthy children. We experienced a case of pyogenic liver abscess in a healthy immunocompetent 10-year-old-girl. The patient presented two distinct abscesses: one subphrenic and the other intrahepatic. The intrahepatic abscess resolved with percutaneous drainage and 3 weeks of parenteral antibiotic therapy but the subphrenic abscess which could not be drained needed prolonged parenteral antibiotic therapy in addition to oral antibiotic therapy. We performed follow-up serial CT scan of the abscess cavity to decide on the duration of antibiotic therapy. Here we present this case with a brief review of the literature ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Pyogenic liver abscess. T2 - Contrast-enhanced MR imaging in rats. AU - Weissleder, R.. AU - Saini, S.. AU - Stark, D. D.. AU - Elizondo, G.. AU - Compton, C.. AU - Wittenberg, J.. AU - Ferrucci, J. T.. PY - 1987. Y1 - 1987. N2 - MR imaging was used to evaluate experimentally induced pyogenic liver abscesses in an animal model. Rats were examined before and after IV administration of either gadolinium-diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (Gd-DTPA), ferrite particles, or both contrast agents together. Pyogenic liver abscesses appeared hypointense on T1-weighted images and hyperintense on T2-weighted images. Bolus administration of Gd-DTPA using a fast spin-echo sequence with repetition time of 250 msec and echo time of 20 msec (SE 250/20) showed transient selective enhancement of normal hepatic tissue and increased lesion conspicuity, quantitatively assessed by the contrast-to-noise ratio, which increased from -35.7 to -59.0. Delayed leakage of Gd-DTPA into the abscess center ...

Pneumoperitoneum is usually the result of a perforated gastrointestinal (GI) tract associated with peritonitis. However, on rare occasions, spontaneous pneumoperitoneum not associated with a perforated GI tract has been described in the literature. A ruptured liver abscess is one of these occasions, and herein a case that resulted in pneumoperitoneum is reported. A 61-year-old woman was referred to the ER with acute onset of abdominal pain. The patient had been diagnosed as having diabetes mellitus and hypertension. The abdominal examination was not remarkable for tenderness, but her vital signs were unstable. Laboratory investigations revealed a WBC count of 4, 000/mm3, Na+ of 129 mEq/L, and K+ of 3.2 mEq/L. A plain radiography disclosed a minute amount of free air in the left subphrenic space, and a computed tomography (CT) scan visualized a low-density cystic mass suspected to be a gas forming pyogenic liver abscess. A laparoscopic exploration was performed for diagnosis and peritoneal ...
Pyogenic liver abscesses are the most common type of visceral abscess. They are often polymicrobial infections arising from contiguous or hematogenous spread.
Pyogenic liver abscess is a potentially life threatening illness. The diagnosis in older adults may be a challenge because of the nonspecific clinical presentation. This letter describes a case of a 74-year-old man who presented with hypotension, a recent fall, delirium, and a high white blood cell count of unknown etiology. The diagnosis was made with the help of imaging and biopsy. The causative bacteria were unknown. There was no malignancy. He eventually needed drainage of his abscess in spite of being treated with antibiotics.

Most pyogenic liver abscesses should be aspirated by ultrasound-guided or CT-guided percutaneous drainage, often with placement of catheter to allow additional drainage. Needle aspiration (with or without catheter placement) is performed for an abscess ,5cm in diameter, and catheter drainage is used for larger abscesses. Repeat needle aspiration may be required in up to half of abscesses ,5cm if a catheter is not left in place. Drains typically remain in place for up to 7 days or until drainage is minimal. Of note, Klebsiella liver abscess aspiration frequently yields relatively small amount of pus as compared to other causative agents.. Surgical drainage is generally recommended when there are multiple abscesses, loculated abscesses, inadequate response to percutaneous drainage after 7 days, or underlying disease that requires surgical management.. Broad spectrum antibiotics that cover enteric flora should be started without delay while gram stain and cultures are pending. Ampicillin-sulbactam, ...
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) has become an increasingly common therapeutic treatment for neoplasms in the liver. A number of devices are now Food and Drug Administration cleared for this indication, and a growing body of literature supports this technique as a therapeutic option for patients with primary or metastatic hepatic malignancies. In vivo animal studies have also shown that this technique can also be used to treat infections. Insertion of the thermal energy delivery probe into an infected liver abscess destroys the bacteria while preserving surrounding tissue. Off-label use of RFA was successfully used to treat 22 abscesses in 4 patients with chronic granulomatous disease who had inoperable liver abscesses. The proposed clinical trial will specifically evaluate the feasibility, safety, and to a lesser extent, efficacy of RFA to treat liver abscesses in subjects with previously diagnosed chronic granulomatous disease. This will be a non-randomized case study conducted at the Clinical ...
A myriad of ingested sharp-pointed objects have been described. The ones most commonly associated with complications are chicken and fish bones. Patients suspected of swallowing sharp-pointed objects must be evaluated to define the location of the object. However, not always the patients are aware of foreign body ingestion, and in these cases the diagnosis is only made on the occurrence of complications, such as in the reported case. Cases of hepatic abscess due to fish bone penetration are rare and may be fatal.1 Until today, less than 12 cases have been described in the literature. The possible mechanism of the liver abscess secondary to fish bone migration from the duodenum its the creation of a duodenohepatic fistula covered by duodenal serosa.2 Since the first reported case, treatments usually include drainage of the abscess, removal of the foreign body, and administration of appropriate antibiotics.3 Surviving patients described in previous reports were all surgically treated, except for ...
Introduction. Trueperella pyogenes (previously, Corynebacterium pyogenes) is an opportunistic pathogen, causing suppurative infections in a wide range of hosts, including avians (Barbour et al., 1991) and domestic animals (Addo et al., 1977). It is known to spread hematogenously to cause abscesses and suppurative lesions in various organs and tissues (Tolle et al., 1983). This organism has been reported to cause liver abscesses in large animals like cattle (Narayananet al., 1998), but its role as an etiological agent for hepatic abscesses in birds like pigeons is yet to be established. The present study reports the isolation and characterization of Trueperella pyogenes from a hepatic abscess in an american fan tailed pigeon.. Materials and Methods. A commercial flock of American-fan tailed pigeons from Thrissur, Kerala was presented with heavy morbidity and mortality. A detailed post-mortem examination of a representative bird, revealed air-sacculitis accompanied by hepatitis and abscesses on ...

Abstract Immunization of hamsters by intramuscular injections of an amebic extract and of two of its fractions, emulsified with complete Freund's adjuvant, resulted in protection against the development of amebic liver abscess, following intrahepatic inoculation of axenic trophozoites of Entamoeba histolytica such that Fraction I, Fraction II, and the whole antigen conferred protection to 18 out of 18, 4 out of 18, and 11 out of 18 hamsters, respectively. Splenomegaly was found to accompany the development of hepatic liver absceses in this experimental system. There was a very high degree of correlation (r = 0.95) between the weights of the abscesses and the spleens. On the other hand, there was no correlation between the anti-amebic antibody titers (determined by the indirect hemagglutination test) and the development of the liver abscesses within the time-span of the experimental protocol used in this study.
Pyogenic liver abscess is a common entity in Indian subcontinent and is mostly caused by gram negative bacteria. Melioidosis is not commonly seen in India and only a few cases are reported. It can give rise to multiple abscesses at different sites in
Case report 2. Female, 66 years-old with epigastric pain for last 15 days without others symptoms. In abdominal ultrasound, we could see a hepatic abscess, segment II and IV, with a maximum diameter of 10 cm. In CT-scan it is possible to see the hepatic abscess with a metallic foreign body inside, probably a needle. Because of it, we decided an emergency surgery to drain the abscess and remove the foreign body, finding a perforation in anterior gastric wall, being necessary suture it. Pathology clarified the origin of foreign body, not a needle, was a bone, probably a chicken bone which patient accidentally ingested previously.. Discussion. Hepatic abscesses secondary to foreign body after perforation of hollow viscera are rare (0-5%). It was first described in 1898, counting only up today 50 cases (2). Most frequent foreign bodies are fish or chicken bones, after perforate stomach or duodenum (3). We have found no cases reported in the literature after the accidental ingestion of rabbit ...
The influence of inflammation on the number of trophozoites and on the murine amoebic liver abscess area following infection with Entamoeba histolytica and E. dispar was evaluated. Immunohistochemistry and digital morphometry were used to identify and quantify the trophozoites, neutrophils, macrophages, and lesions. Positive correlation was observed between the number of trophozoites and inflammatory cells. A significant decrease in parasitism and inflammation in groups treated with dexamethasone was observed. The scarceness or absence of trophozoites in the treated groups suggest the importance of the inflammatory response in the production of amoebic hepatic abscesses in spite of the inherent virulence of the parasite being decisive in the establishment of the lesion.
An 88-year-old woman without relevant medical history visited the emergency room because of generalized weakness associated with fever and chills over the prior 3 days. She reported no history of cigarette smoking or alcohol consumption. Her body temperature was 38.7°C. On examination there was tenderness in the right upper abdomen. Laboratory tests revealed a white blood cell (WBC) count of 11,380/μL, with 87% neutrophils, and a platelet level of 25,000/μL. The patients blood chemistry profile was as follows: fasting glucose, 103 mg/dL; total protein, 5.7 g/dL; albumin, 2.7 g/dL; total bilirubin, 0.4 mg/dL; aspartate aminotransferase, 134 U/L; alanine aminotransferase, 137 U/L; alkaline phosphatase, 203 U/L; gamma-glutamyl transferase, 18 U/L; and amylase, 68 U/L. C-reactive protein level was 24.37 mg/dL (normal range ,0.3 mg/dL) and procalcitonin level was 7.17 ng/mL (normal range ,0.05 ng/mL). Serologic tests for tumor markers were as follows: alpha-fetoprotein, 1.2 ng/mL (normal range, ...

Though amoebic liver abscess and liver cirrhosis occur very commonly in hospital practice in the tropics, they have not to the knowledge of the present authors hitherto been reported to occur simultaneously in the same patient. The patient described here, who had clear-cut clinical and histological features of chronic liver cirrhosis with portal hypertension and ascites, presented somewhat acutely with liver pain and an amoebic liver abscess that contained chocolate sauce on needle aspiration. The amoebic abscess, although, no doubt, superimposed on chronic irreversible cirrhosis, rapidly regressed on metronidazole therapy. The infrequency with which liver abscess and liver cirrhosis coexist cannot be satisfactorily explained. It is probable, however, that extensive scarring in the liver may prevent entamoeba histolytica from thriving.. ...

BACKGROUND: Transdiaphragmatic extension of pyogenic liver abscess is the rarest cause of pericarditis and pleural empyema. It is a rapidly progressive and highly lethal infection with mortality rates reaching 100% if left untreated. However, the transmission route, treatment methods and prognosis have not been well studied. CASE PRESENTATION: A 65-year-old male patient presented with a fever, dyspnea, and right upper quadrant abdominal pain. Computed tomography of the chest and abdomen showed huge liver abscess without full liquefaction in the left lobe, large amount of left pleural effusion, and mild pericardial effusion, and the patient was treated with parenteral antibiotics and pigtail insertion at the left pleura ...
Mucoviscosity-associated gene A (contributes to K1 capsular polysaccharide (CPS) biosynthesis. type K1. These amino acids are also likely to be important for the function of Wzy in other capsular types in and other species bearing Wzy_C family proteins. Introduction is an opportunistic Gram-negative bacterium that causes urinary tract infections, nosocomial pneumonia, and intra-abdominal infections [1]. A new type of invasive disease has emerged Rabbit Polyclonal to ADRB1 worldwide as the source of community-acquired pyogenic liver abscess (PLA), especially in Asia [2], [3], [4], [5]. This disease often is usually complicated by metastatic infections such as meningitis and endophthalmitis. In our previous study, we had screened for mucoviscosity-associated genes by using a transposon mutant library of a PLA strain, NTUH-K2044. The (mucoviscosity-associated gene A) was recognized based on its role in mucoviscosity, resistance to serum killing and phagocytosis, and virulence in mice [6]. Based on ...
Individual patient management will depend on the etiology of the liver nodules. Management of metastatic liver lesions will depend on the primary malignancy. Management of hepatocellular carcinoma is discussed elsewhere (see hepatocellular carcinoma). Simple cysts and hemangiomas may not need any further monitoring or can be tracked over time with repeat imaging.. Emergent management of ruptured hepatic adenomas with resultant intraperitoneal hemorrhage will include placement of sufficient vascular access, volume resuscitation, and likely transfusion of packed red blood cells. Patients with small, asymptomatic hepatic adenomas who are taking oral contraceptives should consider discontinuing this medication and should be counseled about avoiding pregnancy. If hepatic adenoma is symptomatic or ,5 centimeters in size, the patient should be referred to a surgeon for evaluation for resection.. Echinococcal cysts and pyogenic liver abscesses may also rupture causing peritonitis and septic shock, which ...

Liver abscesses are always preceded by intestinal colonization, which may be asymptomatic. Blood vessels may be compromised early by wall lysis and thrombus formation. Trophozoites invade veins to reach the liver through the portal venous system. E. histolytica is resistant to complement-mediated lysis-a property critical to survival in the bloodstream. In contrast, E. dispar is rapidly lysed by complement and is thus restricted to the bowel lumen. Inoculation of amebas into the portal system of hamsters results in an acute cellular infiltrate consisting predominantly of neutrophils. Later, the neutrophils are lysed by contact with amebas, and the release of neutrophil toxins may contribute to necrosis of hepatocytes. The liver parenchyma is replaced by necrotic material that is surrounded by a thin rim of congested liver tissue.The necrotic contents of a liver abscess are classically described as anchovy paste, although the fluid is variable in color and is composed of bacteriologically ...

A proper history and a thorough examination by a Pediatric Surgeon will help to approximate the likely organ of origin of the mass i.e. liver, kidney, intestines, etc. A simple, non-painful investigation: Sonography gives a lot of information. Firstly, it tells whether the mass is fully solid - a normal organ like the liver or spleen is enlarged or it may be suggestive of some tumor, or full of fluid like a liver cyst, liver abscess, a kidney full of obstructed urine (hydronephrosis) etc. Secondly, it also gives the organ from which the mass is arising and information on how large (size) the mass is, the local spread etc. Once the origin and extent is known, other blood tests can be done which are specific from that organ point of view. For better details of the solid mass a CT or MRI needs to be done. The reason for all this hurry is that the mass can be a cancer - there are certain cancers which can be present from birth, gradually grow and if not detected and treated in time can be fatal. On ...
