Primary Abscess of the Psoas of the Child: About a Case Observed at the University Hospital Center of Bouake
ABSTRACT
The primary abscess of the psoas of the child is a rare affection, the pathogenesis of which is still unexplained. The positive diagnosis of this condition is difficult and relies mainly on medical imaging. We report a case of primary psoas abscess in an immunocompetent child, whose diagnosis was facilitated by the provision of abdominal radiography without preparation and abdominal ultrasound. The evolution was favorable thanks to the combination of antibiotic therapy and surgery.
