Results : There were 16 patients diagnosed as amoebic liver abscess, which 15 of them were male, with average age of 44.56 years old. The average length of stay was 10 days. Enlarged liver was found in 87.5% of the patients. The average AST, ALT, Alkaline phosphatase, and gamma-GT were 34 U/L, 60.63 U/L, 184.82 U/L, and 176.17 U/L respectively.
