Abstract

A 46-year-old Japanese female expatriate living in Jakarta presented with intermittent fever lasting for a month. Although she was considered at low risk of Fasciola spp. infection because she lived in an upper-class residential area of the city, the patient presented with eosinophilia after consuming organic raw vegetables; in addition, contrast-enhanced computed tomography detected microabscesses in a tractlike pattern in the liver. These findings led to an early diagnosis of fascioliasis, which was successfully treated without sequelae. In any patient with a history of consuming raw vegetables, fascioliasis should be suspected regardless of where the patient has lived.
