Its adequate understanding, together with the knowledge on the molecular biology and genetics of the parasite and of the host’s immune mechanisms will allow the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic tools as well as the development of an effective and safe vaccine for eliminating the disease.

It would be convenient to design epidemiologic studies to know the real prevalence of amehiano in Spain. Med Clin Barc ; The treatment for ALA consists of the intraluminal and systemic administration of amoebacides as soon as possible.

Surgical treatment is performed if percutaneous drainage fails or complications arise. The amebic liver abscess is uncommon in developed countries like Spain, but the incidence is increasing probably due to the migratory movements of the population. Study of 20 cases with literature review.
