İntravenöz uyuşturucu kullanan hastalardaki enfeksiyöz komplikasyonlara bir örnek: Psoas absesi
Example of an infectious complication in injection drug users: Psoas abscess

Meltem Songür Kodik [1] , Murat Ersel [2]


Bu olgu sunumunda intravenöz uyuşturucu kullanan bir hastada gelişen psoas absesi sunulmaktadır. Bu hastalar sıklıkla acil servise sebebi bilinmeyen enfeksiyonlar nedeniyle başvururlar. Enfeksiyonun belirsiz semptomları nedeniyle klinisyenler için tanı koyması zordur. Yirmi altı yaşında ilaç bağımlılığı olan ve bu sebeple tedavi gören kadın hasta, bilinmeyen enfeksiyöz semptomlar ile acil servise başvurmuştur. Fizik muayenede sağ koksadan dize kadar yayılan ağrı ortaya çıktı. Sağ kalçaya yönelik çekilen bilgisayarlı tomografide psoas absesi saptandı.

In this case report the authors aim to present a psoas abscess of an injection drug user. These patients mostly admit to emergency department (ED) because of infections with unknown origin. Because of the obscure symptoms of the infection it is a challenge to diagnose for clinicians. A 26-year-old female who had drug addiction problem, and also under treatment for this problem, admitted with obscure infectious symptoms to ED. Physical examination revealed a pain located in the right coxae radiating to the knee. Computed tomography images of the right hip demonstrated a psoas abscess.
