Abdominal ultrasound: multiloculated heterogeneous collection in the right hepatic lobe (Figure 1A). The second case, a 1-year-old girl with congenital neutropenia, showed fever, malaise, anorexia, sweating and pallor. Abdominal computed tomography showed hypodense lesion with heterogeneous impregnation by contrast in the left hepatic lobe (Figure 1B).
