Arch Dis Child. 1983 Oct;58(10):828-9. doi: 10.1136/adc.58.10.828.


Three previously healthy children developed nonamoebic liver abscess. Diagnosis was aided by liver scan, ultrasound assessment, and computed tomography. A variety of surgical procedures were successful in achieving proper drainage, resection of chronic lesions, and resolution of associated cholangitis.
