Tropical pyomyositis is a disease of skeletal muscle characterized by single or multiple abscesses. The infective organism is most often penicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Only recently have case reports appeared in the literature from temperate zones; however, this disease is common in the tropics. This report reviews the literature and describes a child from rural North Carolina in whom tropical pyomyositis developed after incision and drainage of a furuncle.
