Resolution time of amoebic liver abscess by micro-opaque barium sulphate



Resolution time of amoebic liver abscess by micro-opaque barium sulphate



Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 80(8): 169-172



The resolution time of amoebic liver abscess after treatment in 20 males aged 20 to 80 years, as studied by intra-cavitary micro-opaque barium sulphate, ranged from 24 to 184 days (mean 74.8). 6 of these patients also underwent Indium113m scanning. The resolution time by scanning varied from 24 to 114 days (mean 58.3). No correlation was found between the size of abscess and resolution time. Resolution time studied by 2 methods was statistically significant.
