Paraspinal abscess in the psoas muscle
|Classification and external resources|
An abscess in the psoas muscle of the abdomen may be caused by lumbar tuberculosis. Owing to the proximal attachments of the iliopsoas, such an abscess may drain inferiorly into the upper medial thigh and present as a swelling in the region.
Treatment may involve drainage and antibiotics.
