Core Tip The clinical presentation and imaging findings of amebic liver abscess (ALA) can be classified into three forms: subacute mild, acute aggressive and chronic indolent. The latter two forms are particularly associated with most complications of ALA. Despite this, prior literature primarily focused on the mild form of the disease, which responds well to antibiotics. To the best of our knowledge, there is no research on the types of ALA. In this review, the distinct clinical and imaging characteristics of each type are discussed in detail. With this understanding, the therapeutic strategy, medical or interventional, can be employed more efficiently for patients with ALA.
