Abstract

Summary

A group of 37 patients which included 6 positive control cases of amebic abscess of the liver and 31 patients with suspected hepatic amebiasis were investigated by hepatic scanning, using I Rose Bengal (tetraiodotetrachlorfluorescein) as the tracer agent. A minor but helpful differential pattern of focal-filling “defect” in amebic abscess of the liver was recorded on scan. This investigation was helpful in detecting concealed and multiple amebic abscess of the liver and in studying the progress of the healing of this lesion in the liver.
