Report of Capnocytophaga sputigena primary iliopsoas abscess.

17:38 EDT 17th April 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Report of Capnocytophaga sputigena primary iliopsoas abscess."

Iliopsoas abscess is usually secondary to the spread of infection from a contiguous focus. Primary disease is uncommon except in children where Staphylococcus aureus is the main pathogen. We report a 60 years old lady who developed primary iliopsoas abscess as a result of haematogenous spread of C. sputigena from palatal fistula and chronic sinusitis due to previous treatment for nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Pyomyositis due to unusual and fastidious Gram negative bacilli should be considered in patients with head and neck tumours who had previously received radiotherapy.
