WEST, W et al. Bilateral psoas abscess in a case of granuloma inguinale. West Indian med. j. [online]. 2005, vol.54, n.5, pp. 343-345. ISSN 0043-3144. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0043-31442005000500015.
The authors present a case of disseminated granuloma inguinale with bilateral psoas abscesses. Infection with calymmatobacterium granulomatis is usually localized to the genital organs but rarely may be disseminated. A search of the literature revealed that only two cases of psoas abscesses due to calymmatobacterium granulomatis were previously reported.
