Disease relevance of Psoas Abscess


High impact information on Psoas Abscess

  • The specific gallium-67 scan uptake pattern in psoas abscesses [6].
  • We present a case of recurrent infection (infective spondilitis, psoas abscess, and bacteraemia) caused by a single strain of cefotaxime- and ciprofloxacin-resistant and bla(CMY-2)-containing Salmonella enterica serotype choleraesuis during a 4-month period in a patient with uremia [7].
  • SETTING: Tuberculosis Centre, University Medical Centre, Groningen, The Netherlands. OBJECTIVES: To study intralesional concentrations of isoniazid (INH), rifampicin (RMP) and pyrazinamide (PZA) in tuberculous pleural effusions and psoas abscesses, and to compare these to reference serum values and minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) [3].
  • OBJECTIVES: To study the variations of aetiology in the patients with acute pyogenic iliopsoas abscess and identify the appropriate diagnostic modalities as well as therapeutic alternatives (e.g. extraperitoneal or retrofascial percutaneous catheter drainage, PCD) other than surgery [8].
  • To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case in which vertebral osteomyelitis and psoas abscess have been associated with atrial septal defect [9].

Chemical compound and disease context of Psoas Abscess


Anatomical context of Psoas Abscess

  • Three of four patients whose cases fit the clinical description of psoas abscess proved on gallium imaging to have infection in the posterior pararenal space sparing the psoas muscle [11].

Gene context of Psoas Abscess

  • Falling downstairs does not mean a fracture: the 1st case report of an immunocompetent community acquired MRSA disc/psoas abscess [13].
  • F-18 FDG positron emission tomographic imaging in bilateral iliopsoas abscesses [14].
  • We present 17 cases of primary pyogenic psoas abscess seen during a 10 year period at the King Fahd Hospital, Al-Khobar [15].
  • BACKGROUND: Image-guided percutaneous drainage has been shown to be a safe and effective alternative to surgery in the management of psoas abscess in adults and adolescents [16].
