Tropical pyomyositis is a disease of skeletal muscle characterised by single or multiple abscesses with Staphylococcus aureus the most commonly isolated organism. Most cases have been reported from the hot and humid tropics. This report reviews the literature, describes a case from hot, dry Saudi Arabia and suggests that such cases may be missed because local clinicians may be unaware of the existence of such a clinical entity.
