Tuberculosis with psoas abscess

Case contributed by Dr Jeremy Jones
Modality: CT


Case Discussion

This patient with known TB presented with back pain and problems mobilising.

Their CT confirmed the apical scarring consistent with TB and also revealed a psoas abscess: the source of their mobility problem.

The massive left sided renal cyst was initially distracting. Only a check of review areas yeilded the diagnosis.
