A case of amoebiasis with multi-organ involvement is reported, who, in addition to intestinal and hepatic pathology, had left-sided pleuropulmonary involvement and an extremely unusual splenic enlargement as well. The diagnosis was supported by dramatic response to specific anti-amoebic therapy. The possible pathogenesis of this extremely rare clinical presentation is discussed and the need to keep in mind the possibility of amoebiasis in differential diagnosis is stressed.
