PA often presents with non-specific symptoms resulting in significant mortality, therefore requiring a high index of suspicion requiring timely imaging and diagnosis. PA can be further complicated by pathologies such as pleural effusion which can significantly increase morbidity. This report details a case of psoas abscess secondary to appendicitis which was complicated by right sided pleural effusion.</p> Ramandeep Kaur, Denbigh Simond ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.journalajcrs.com/index.php/AJCRS/article/view/30345 Wed, 05 Jan 2022 00:00:00 +0000
