Iliopsoas abscess is a very rare pathology in the neonatal period. There is a lack of reports in the literature on bilateral psoas abscess with hip joint arthritis. We report a case of bilateral iliopsoas abscess with concomitant right hip septic arthritis, caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in a 28-day-old male infant. The baby presented with bilateral diffuse swelling of the groins and upper thighs. He was treated successfully by ultrasound-guided percutaneous drainage along with systemic antibiotic therapy. Clinical improvement was observed within 24-48 hours of drainage.
