Abstract

Tuberculosis is no longer the commonest cause of psoas abscess, but the demonstration of a calcified psoas abscess associated with spondylitis is virtually pathognomonic of the disease. Five cases are presented, four of which demonstrated psoas abscess calcification. One was uncalcified. Two of the five cases showed no definite evidence of bone destruction, thus probably representing the relatively rare subligamentous form of tuberculosis of the spine.
