Amoebiasis is the third leading cause of mortality due to parasitic infection worldwide after malaria and schistosomiasis. The direct pulmonary Entamoeba histolytica is rarer than reactive events called “neighborhood”. We report the role of imaging in the diagnostic orientation in a case of amoebic pleuropulmonary damage (associated with serology and parasitology). Before an excavated pulmonary lesion, imaging can be a great contribution in the working diagnosis of pulmonary parasite Entamoeba histolytica.
