Amebic liver abscess is the accumulation of pus in the liver. It occurs because of the presence of the intestinal parasite, called Entamoeba histolytica. This parasite causes an infection in the intestine called Amebiasis. After the person is infected, this parasite flows into the liver through the blood from the intestines. This disease is caused by the parasite Entamoeba histolytica, which can be typically present in food or water that has been contaminated with excrement. It may occur when human excrement is used as a fertilizer for crops. Another cause of this disease is through personal contact i.e. if one ingests food or water from a person whose hands are contaminated with feces. Liver abscess causes symptoms such as abdominal pain, especially pain in the upper part of the abdomen. This pain is excessive, ongoing and stinging. A few other symptoms include fever, shivering and sometimes coughing. A general feeling of unpleasantness and uneasiness, accompanied by diarrhea are also observed. If you notice these symptoms, it is necessary to seek out medical attention and consultation from a general physician, who may refer you to a specialist if need be. The treatment of this disease is usually meted by antibiotics. Certain drug medications are also given to patients, so as to remove the amoeba from the intestines and to avoid the reoccurrence of the disease. Surgery may be needed in some cases to drain the abscess.
