Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Iliopsoas abscess is a rarely encountered entity. Early diagnosis is hindered by a nonspecific clinical presentation. The resulting delays in therapy increase morbidity and mortality rates. Our recent experience with three cases of iliopsoas abscess is presented. Based on a review of the literature, diagnostic and treatment recommendations are made.
