Subtle hypodense lesion with vague rim enhancement within the right psoas muscle
1 case question available
Contrast-enhanced CT abdomen and pelvis demonstrated slightly rim-enhancing hypo dense lesion in the right psoas muscle.
Given patient fever and raised inflammatory markers, an abscess was the main diagnosis, however haematoma was considered a differential diagnosis.
The patient reported prior trauma to the right lumbar region which most likely resulted in psoas muscle heamatoma that got infected.
