ABSTRACT
Fascioliasis is a zoonotic helminthiasis caused by Fasciola hepatica, the sheep liver fluke. Humans are accidental hosts in the life cycle of the parasite. They are infected by the ingestion of water or raw aquatic vegetables contaminated with the metacercaria. The diagnosis of fascioliasis is based on clinical symptoms, absolute eosinophilia, serologic test (ELISA), radiologic finding, and presence of eggs in the feces or duodenal fluid. Recently, some radiologists have been reporting specific findings of fascioliasis by MRI. We report a case of liver abscess associated with fascioliasis diagnosed by MRI.(Korean J Hepatol 2001;7:90-94)
KeyWords: Liver abscess, Fascioliasis, MRI
