Abcess on back
5yo F child with 8x8cm abcess x2 wks. Mother no knowledge how did her child got this.
The child probably got bite
Probably cockroach bite
Did you have pus cultured? An amazing amount!
Do cockroachces bite? Didn't know that!
Call general surgery..age, location, and size matters
Ahhh thank you for sharing! 97% as good as a video!!!!!
Get a thoraco-lumbar xray AP and lateral. This could be a Tubercular abscess from vertebra that drains along psoas muscle. Was the abscess warm or cold to touch?

I hope you got an awesome sample from all that beautiful puss! LOL. I'm also thinking MRSA on my DDx.
do videos can be uploaded here? i have video of the oozing pus upon drainage
Don't play with our hearts like that.
I think we'd all like to see that, lol.
Go on tease me....
*pus. Hope it wasn't a cat in there, both child and cat would be extremely unhappy.
Wow, poor child. So young for an abscess.
Yaaas! Squeeze that baby 😆😍

A stress reliever, like mashing a good blackhead.

In all seriousness, though, this poor child probably feels 1000% better after I&D. Good job.
Indeed her mother says that her child once told her that they will go to hospital because she's dying. Poor child
Awwww....That poor baby thinking she was dying and wanting to go to the hospital.. my heart ❤️ just breaks...
Poor child. But on the other hand....so satisfying to see that draining.
Holy cow 😳that's crazy. I can just imagine what a relief the kid has now that it's drained.
I cannot imagine waiting until this point to have my child seen/ I'm sure it could be social economic issues- but that poor baby had to be suffering a while, no?
