We report the ultrasonographic features of hepatic amebiasis in six children. The spectrum of change ranges from a typical abscess to early 'hepatitis.' Ultrasonography is the primary imaging modality in patients suspected of having this disease and is excellent in localizing disease. This is important in terms of abscess drainage and in recognizing complications such as diaphragmatic perforation and empyema.
