The incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma is increased in areas with high carrier rates of hepatitis B and C and in patients with haemochromatosis. More than 80% of hepatocellular carcinomas occur in patients with cirrhotic livers. Once viral infection is established it takes about 10 years for patients to develop chronic hepatitis, 20 years to develop cirrhosis, and 30 years to develop carcinoma. In African and Asian countries aflatoxin, produced as a result of contamination of imperfectly stored staple crops by Aspergillus flavus, seems to be an independent risk factor for the development of hepatocellular carcinoma, probably through mutation of the p53 suppressor gene.
Clinical symptoms usually improve greatly within 24 hours. Lower doses of metronidazole are often effective in invasive disease but may fail to eliminate the intraluminal infection, allowing clinical relapses to occur. After the amoebic abscess has been treated, patients are prescribed diloxanide furoate 500 mg, eight hourly for seven days, to eliminate intestinal amoebae. Patients should have ultrasonographically guided needle aspiration if serology gives negative results or the abscess is large ( > 10 cm), if they do not respond to treatment, or if there is impending peritoneal, pleural, or pericardial rupture.
