Amoebic abscess in the liver


An autopsy specimen from a 39 year old male who had acquired amoebiasis in India. The liver shows two abscesses with ragged lining. The surrounding tissue is more pale and oedematous compared to the normal liver. These abscesses contained brown-red fluid which has disappeared in the preparation of the specimen.
