Core Tip Amebic liver abscess (ALA) is the most prevalent type of liver abscess in the tropical world. It has many peculiar characteristics, such as non-suppurative lesion, strong male predisposition, association with alcohol consumption, predilection for the right liver lobe, and potential for healing without drainage. Differentiating it from a pyogenic liver abscess can be challenging in clinical practice. The role of a serological test is limited in the endemic regions where microbiological evidence often requires molecular tests. Metronidazole continues to be the preferred agent for ALA. However, there are some growing concerns regarding the resistance against this drug. Drainage is often not required for the treatment of uncomplicated ALA. In the case of complicated ALA, a recent paradigm shift has led to the preference for percutaneous treatment over surgery, which carries a high mortality risk.
