Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Delay in diagnosis can be serious in amoebic hepatic abscess, which is readily treatable. Two cases are presented to illustrate potential causes of delay. The first case had never been to an endemic area, apparently contracting the infection from his wife. The second case had negative serological tests.
