Grey scale ultrasound shows two focal non-specific hypoechoic liver lesions. Other lesion was present (not shown). Contrast enhanced ultrasound allows to diagnose abscesses, owing to the wall enhancement in arterial phase with washout in the late phase, and lack of central enhancement. Considering the roundness and homogeneous appearance in grey scale and the smoothness of the wall in contrast enhanced ultrasound, these lesions are very suggestive of amebic abscesses. Diagnosis was confirmed by laboratory findings and by dissapearance of the lesions after specific medical treatment.
