5341. Amebic Abscess of the Liver: Surgical Aspects Full Text available with Trip Pro

Amebic Abscess of the Liver: Surgical Aspects During the past five years, ten documented cases of hepatic amebic abscess have required surgical intervention at Olive View Hospital, Van Nuys, California. Three of the patients underwent laparotomy when an hepatic abscess ruptured into the peritoneal cavity, and two required surgical intervention when an abscess invaded adjacent organs. Another abscess continued to enlarge despite metronidazole therapy and still another became superinfected

5342. Counter immunoelectrophoresis as a rapid screening test for amoebic liver abscess. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Counter immunoelectrophoresis as a rapid screening test for amoebic liver abscess. Counter immunoelectrophoresis using cellulose acetate as the supporting medium was used as a rapid screening test for amoebic abscess. All the sera from 40 cases gave positive results. No false positives were obtained, but the results in intestinal amoebiasis were less reliable. An attempt was made to account for discrepancies in previous reports.

5346. Hepatic abscess. Changes in etiology, diagnosis, and management. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Hepatic abscess. Changes in etiology, diagnosis, and management. Most recent reviews of pyogenic hepatic abscess emphasize percutaneous versus open surgical management and devote little time to studying the etiology or the clinical condition of the patient. In this study a detailed review was performed with a computerized analysis of multiple clinical parameters in 73 patients treated for pyogenic hepatic abscess during a 17-year period. The mean age of the patients was 55 years and 38 of them (...) (52%) were male. The mortality rate was comparable for solitary (17%) and multiple (23%) abscesses. The likelihood of death was higher with antibiotic treatment alone (45%) or percutaneous treatment (25%) than with surgical treatment (9.5%). The primary determinant of outcome, however, was the underlying disease, i.e., malignancy or an immunocompromised patient, rather than solitary versus multiple abscesses. In addition the incidence of hepatic abscess seen at this center has doubled from

5347. Ruptured Amebic Liver Abscess Full Text available with Trip Pro

Ruptured Amebic Liver Abscess We treated two patients with a ruptured amebic liver abscess. The diagnosis was made at a relatively early stage and treatment was successful for one patient, but an accurate diagnosis of liver abscess was not made and invasive extraintestinal amebiasis led to multiple organ failure and to death for the other. Neither patient had been outside of Japan, and both were heterosexual. The origins of Entamoeba histolytica infection could not be determined. Though (...) the mortality rate is high in cases of ruptured amebic liver abscess, appropriate management can lead to a good prognosis.

Pyogenic hepatic abscess. Changing trends over 42 years. The authors document changes in the etiology, diagnosis, bacteriology, treatment, and outcome of patients with pyogenic hepatic abscesses over the past 4 decades.Pyogenic hepatic abscess is a highly lethal problem. Over the past 2 decades, new roentgenographic methods, such as ultrasound, computed tomographic scanning, direct cholangiography, guided aspiration, and percutaneous drainage, have altered both the diagnosis and treatment (...) of these patients. A more aggressive approach to the management of hepatobiliary and pancreatic neoplasms also has resulted in an increased incidence of this problemThe records of 233 patients with pyogenic liver abscesses managed over a 42-year period were reviewed. Patients treated from 1952 to 1972 (n = 80) were compared with those seen from 1973 to 1993 (n = 153).From 1973 to 1993, the incidence increased from 13 to 20 per 100,000 hospital admissions (p < 0.01.

5351. Amebic liver abscess: epidemiology, clinical features, and outcome. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Amebic liver abscess: epidemiology, clinical features, and outcome. Amebic liver abscess (ALA) is a serious, but readily treatable form of hepatic infection. In order to understand the clinical features of this condition in the United States, we reviewed the medical histories of 56 patients with ALA at two large San Francisco Hospitals from 1979 to 1994. Patients were divided into the following groups based on the presumed manner in which they had acquired ALA: those born or raised (...) -ALA, those with Tr-ALA were more likely to have hepatomegaly (P < 0.0001) and large abscesses (ALA > 10 cm; P < 0.01). One third of the patients studied had no associated travel history or endemic origin as risk factors. Of these, 63% had a condition consistent with severe immunosuppression, such as infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), malnourishment with severe hypoalbuminemia, or chronic infection. In patients with N-ALA, the presence of a presumed immunosuppressed state

A global emerging disease of Klebsiella pneumoniae liver abscess: is serotype K1 an important factor for complicated endophthalmitis? Over the past two decades in Taiwan, pyogenic liver abscess has usually been caused by a single microorganism, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and is frequently associated with the serious complication of endophthalmitis, especially in diabetic patients. However, the relationship between the clinical presentation and bacterial factors remains unclear. The aim (...) of this study was to investigate the clinical features of patients and the serotype and ribotype of K pneumoniae liver abscess.From July 1991 to June 1998, a total of 134 cases of K pneumoniae liver abscess with 248 K pneumoniae isolates from the same patients were collected from two large medical centres in northern Taiwan. Clinical data were collected from medical records. Serotyping and ribotyping were performed using the countercurrent immunoelectrophoresis method and automated Riboprinter.Serotyping

Hepatic Abscess in Patients With Chronic Granulomatous Disease To evaluate the clinical presentation, diagnostic procedures, and surgical management of hepatic abscesses in patients with chronic granulomatous disease (CGD).Chronic granulomatous disease is a rare inherited primary immunodeficiency in which phagocytes cannot destroy catalase-positive bacteria and fungi. Defects in the phagocytic cells' respiratory burst lead to life-threatening infections, including hepatic abscess (...) . These abscesses are recurrent and often multiple and are treated differently from bacterial abscesses in patients without CGD.Between 1980 and 2000, 61 cases of hepatic abscess in 22 patients with CGD were treated at the National Institutes of Health. Clinicopathologic features were investigated by retrospective review of the medical records, radiographs, and histopathology.Twelve of the 61 cases were primary hepatic abscesses. Twenty-nine of the cases were recurrent hepatic abscesses, and 20 cases were

Isolation of Legionella pneumophila by Centrifugation of Shell Vial Cell Cultures from Multiple Liver and Lung Abscesses A 7-year-old girl was admitted to the hospital with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and was treated with allogenic cord blood transplantation. At day 30 after graft, she developed a fever and multiple nodular lesions disseminated in the liver and lungs. All bacterial cultures attempted on liver and lung biopsy specimens and blood remained sterile on standard axenic media (...) . However, inoculation of liver and lung biopsy specimens on eukaryotic cell monolayers by the centrifugation-shell vial technique (M. Marrero and D. Raoult, Am. J. Trop. Med. Hyg. 40:197-199, 1989) led to the recovery of a strain of Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1, identified by 16S rRNA gene amplification and sequencing and serotyping. Our findings demonstrate that the centrifugation-cell culture method, which has previously been useful for the isolation of other strictly or facultatively

5360. Uncomplicated amebic liver abscess: prospective evaluation of percutaneous therapeutic aspiration. (Abstract)

Uncomplicated amebic liver abscess: prospective evaluation of percutaneous therapeutic aspiration. The performance of therapeutic aspiration in the treatment of amebic liver abscess, advocated and practiced in many centers, is controversial. Previously, this practice has been evaluated in retrospective analyses. To test the potential benefit of therapeutic aspiration, the authors undertook a prospective randomized trial in 57 patients admitted for suspected amebic liver abscess during a 15 (...) improvement in symptoms after aspiration was greater in the aspiration group at a marginally statistically significant level. These data do not support the adjunctive performance of percutaneous therapeutic aspiration in the treatment of uncomplicated amebic liver abscess. Amebicidals alone were equally efficacious in treating the group studied.
