ABSTRACT

The  ultrasonographic  findings  o  19  liver  abscess  patients  caused  by  different  organisms  were  evaluated  in  terms  of  echogenicity,  multiplicity,  size  location  and  associated  findings.  Among  8  cases of  melioisis,  most  cases  (7/8)  had  low  echoic  abscesses  founded  in  the  right  lobe.  Staphylococcal  abscess  had  low  echoic  lesions  with  echoic  nidus.  All  3  cases  of  and  klebsiella  abscess,  because  there  was  only  one  patient  founded   in  each  disease,  their  ultrasono graphic  features could  be  concluded.
