We report a case of a recurrent psoas abscess caused by two different pathogens. The abdominal CT scans revealed a multiseptated cystic mass along the right psoas-iliacus muscle. The patient was treated with antibiotics treatment in combination with CT-guided percutaneous aspiration and drainage using a catheter. The microbiological examination revealed Klebsiella pneumoniae. Six months later, the patient presented with anorexia, malaise, epigastric pain, lower back pain and fever of 37.8oC for a one-week duration. The abdominal CT scans revealed an abscess cavity on the inferior side of the right psoaos-iliacus muscle. This was accompanied by retrocecal appendicitis and a periappendiceal abscess. Magnetic resonance imaging of the pelvis showed that the psoas abscess was located on the right psoas-iliacus muscle. We performed an appendectomy and laparotomy. Subsequently, the culture yielded Escherichia coli in the psoas abscess. To our knowledge, this is the first case of a recurrent psoas abscess caused by two different pathogens.
