Abstract
Background: Hepato- biliary masses may be benign, malignant or metastatic in origin. The present study was conducted to assess hepato- biliary masses.
Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on 62 patients of both genders. All the relevant information regarding history, fever, pain, abdominal discomfort and clinical examination was done. All were subjected to ultrasonography using transducers 3.5-5 MHz frequency after applying jelly as a coupling agent for proper contact between the probe and the skin surface.
Results: Out of 62 patients, males were 32 and females were 30. Maximum lesions were of pyogenic liver abscess (12) followed by gall bladder CA (12) and hydratid liver cyst (8). The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: Hepato- biliary masses are common in adult population. Most common lesions were of pyogenic liver abscess, gall bladder CA and hydratid liver cyst.
