Silent amebic liver abscess

, : Silent amebic liver abscess. Archives of Internal Medicine 147(11): 2054, 2056-2054, 2056

A 66-year-old man presenting with paroxysmal atrial fibrillations, showed on X-ray, an elevated dome of the right aspect of the diaphragm. Ultrasonography and computed tomography revealed a large (9-10 cm in diameter) regular lesion in the right lobe of the liver and several much smaller lesions in the left lobe. These lesions were compatible with abscesses and remained unchanged during 3 months; the patients remained well. Parasites were not found in stools.
