Treatment of Appendicitis With Iliopsoas Abscess by Laparoscopic One-Step Surgery

Kyeong Woon Choi, Woo Yong Lee


Acute appendicitis is the most common cause of acute abdomen and on rare occasions can present atypically with a retroperitoneal abscess. In this report, we present a rare case of acute appendicitis combined with iliopsoas muscle abscess. A laparoscopic appendectomy and iliopsoas abscess drainage were performed by a one-step laparoscopic procedure that did not incur any intraoperative or postoperative complications. The results of this case demonstrate that the laparoscopic approach is feasible and effective for the treatment of appendicitis complicated by retroperitoneal abscess.
