Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Whereas psoas abscess secondary to many local intra- and extra-peritoneal septic processes is well recognised, primary psoas abscess is much less common and the diagnosis is often delayed, leading to significant morbidity and mortality. A case of primary psoas abscess is described and the role of ultrasound in the investigation and management is discussed.
