Suppurative psoas abscess is a rare lesion and lack of familiarity with it remains major difficulty in diagnosis. The symptoms often involve hip rather than abdomen or spine. We report a case of non-tuberculous suppurative psoas abscess in a 25 year old man who presented with hip pain. Septic arthritis of hip was ruled out by aspiration of hip and diagnosis of psoas abscess was made on MRI scan.
