Abstract

Summary

Five cases of amebic liver abscess in male Africans in which characteristic pus was obtained were treated with Aureomycin in a dose of 500 mgm. 6 hourly for 10 days.

In two cases there was no response, in two cases possibly some response, and in one case an apparently good result was followed by recurrence in six weeks.

The results have been compared with those obtained in similar cases with emetine and chloroquin diphosphate and it is concluded that Aureomycin is a much less effective drug.
