Pyogenic liver abscess and the emergence of Klebsiella as an etiology: a retrospective study.

Pyogenic liver abscess (PLA) is a significant, though uncommon, cause of morbidity in the United States. Recently, Klebsiella has emerged as an important cause of PLA. We analyzed the clinical course,...

Fusobacterium liver abscess.

Fusobacterium is well characterized as an oropharyngeal pathogen that may induce a septic thrombophlebitis by direct extension of abscess into an adjacent neck vessel (Lemierre's syndrome); its potent...

Broncho-hepatico-cutaneous fistula in a case of amoebic liver abscess.

Pulmonary complications occur in 7-20% of patients with amoebic liver abscess(ALA) and may present as pleural effusion, empyema, lung abscess or a bronchohepatic fistula. Rupture into a bronchus prese...

Liver abscess due to Klebsiella pneumoniae in a healthy 12-year-old boy.

Pyogenic liver abscess (PLA) is rare in healthy children. We report a case of PLA in an immunocompetent 12-year-old boy. Percutaneous catheter drainage was performed for the abscess. In addition, pare...

A case of intrahepatic hematoma from hepatocellular carcinoma.

Spontaneous intrahepatic hematoma caused by hepatocellular carcinoma is a rare condition since usually the circumference shows liver cirrhosis. We report a case of hepatocellular carcinoma with an int...

Intestinal Protozoal Infections and Sexual Transmitted Diseases Among Targeted Cohorts

In this two-year study, we will target two high risk groups, including MSM of HIV-infected and those of non-HIV-infected. We will avail the serodiagnosis to detect the potential amebic car...

ABCB4 Gene Mutations in Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy and Controls

Mutations of the ATP binding cassette subfamily B member 4 (ABCB4) gene, a gene involved in a subtype of progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis, have been reported in women sufferin...

Liver Regeneration Therapy by Intrahepatic Arterial Administration of Autologous Adipose Tissue Derived Stromal Cells

Mesenchymal stem cells have capability to differentiate into hepatocyte and will be useful for liver regeneration. Adipose tissue is relatively enriched with mesenchymal stem cell compared...

Aquacel Versus Iodoform Gauze for Filling Abscess Cavity Following Incision and Drainage

This study compares Aquacel against routine Iodoform packing for packing abscess cavities after incision and drainage. It is hypothesized that Aquacel will produce speedier healing of the...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Infection with amoebae of the genus ENTAMOEBA. Infection with E. histolytica causes DYSENTERY, AMEBIC and LIVER ABSCESS, AMEBIC.

Single or multiple areas of PUS due to infection by any ameboid protozoa (AMEBIASIS). A common form is caused by the ingestion of ENTAMOEBA HISTOLYTICA.

DYSENTERY caused by intestinal amebic infection, chiefly with ENTAMOEBA HISTOLYTICA. This condition may be associated with amebic infection of the LIVER and other distant sites.

A procedure whereby the body is stimulated to generate extra soft tissue by the application of stretching forces that stimulate new growth of tissue which, over a period of time, results in a 2-dimensional expansion of the tissue. The procedure is used in reconstructive surgery for injuries caused by trauma, burns, or ablative surgery. Various types of TISSUE EXPANSION DEVICES have been developed that exert stretching forces.

Solitary or multiple collections of PUS within the liver as a result of infection by bacteria, protozoa, or other agents.
