Abstract

Although amebic liver abscess is a common disease, it is a rare cause of venous thrombosis. Computed tomography (CT) scan is an ideal tool for diagnosing the various complications associated with liver abscess. We describe a case of amebic liver abscess in a patient who developed a rare vascular complication of hepatic vein and inferior vena cava thrombosis.
