The doctor would like to answer the question: "What to do with a multifocal liver abscess that can't be cured forever? ” as follows:
Your case has been treated for a liver abscess caused by a parasite (liver fluke) but has not improved, indicating that your liver damage is complicated or the treatment regimen is poor. You need to go to Vinmec hospital or a hospital with hepatobiliary medicine to be assessed for the extent of the disease and treated.
Bring your test results (including CT/MRI) with you so the doctor can better assess your condition. Your doctor will adjust your regimen based on your previous medication and dose. Depending on the specific disease, the treatment options will vary.
Treatment methods for liver abscess include medical treatment (medication alone), abscess drainage (with purulent abscess), liver resection.
Complications of parasitic liver abscess are localized infection in the liver, sepsis, pneumonia, rupture of abscesses into adjacent spaces (lungs, abdomen, gastrointestinal tract, pericardium).
If you still have questions about this issue, you can go to a hospital under Vinmec Health System to check. Thank you for trusting and sending questions to Vinmec. Wishing you lots of health.
