CASTILLO, Sergio  and  MANTEROLA, Carlos. Morphological Characteristics of Liver Abscesses According its Etiology. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2020, vol.38, n.2, pp.406-414. ISSN 0717-9502.

Although infrequent in the diagnostics areas, liver abscesses are of significant relevance, which is related to the high morbidity and mortality figures they can cause if they are not detected and treated in time. Although multiple operational classifications are described, the one most recognized for its usefulness is that related to its causative agent (pyogenic or bacterial infection, hydatid origin or secondary to infected hydatidosis, and amoebic or by invasive amebiasis). The objective of this article was to generate a study report regarding the morphological characteristics of liver abscesses, characterizing them according to their etiology, as well as describing their study and the latest recommended treatments.

Keywords : "Liver Abscess"[Mesh]; “Echinococcosis, Hepatic”[Mesh]; ”“Liver Abscess, Pyogenic”[Mesh]; “Liver Abscess, Amebic”[Mesh]; Hydatidosis, Hepatic.
