What Is a Psoas Abscess?

abscess psoas

A psoas abscess is an abscess in one of the psoas muscles which extend from the lower spine into the groin. There are a number of potential reasons for one of these muscles to become abscessed, and it can sometimes be tricky to diagnose an abscess in the psoas muscle, as the symptoms are not necessarily obvious. Fortunately, the prognosis for patients with this problem is very good, especially when intervention is provided early.
