Resumen

DUANI, Helena et al. Bilateral paracoccidioidomycotic iliopsoas abscess associated with ileo-colonic lesion. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.5, pp. 649-651. ISSN 0037-8682.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0037-86822012000500021.

This case report shows the clinical development of a patient with systemic paracoccidioidomycosis presenting with lymphatic-intestinalmanifestation. The patient initially had a substantial clinical improvement but had a recrudescence after six months of sulfamethoxazoletrimethoprim oral treatment, with the emergence of feverish syndrome, lumbar pain, and intermittent claudication, characterizing a bilateral iliopsoas muscle abscess, necessitating clinicosurgical therapeutics.

Palabras llave : Paracoccidioidomycosis; Psoas abscess; Paracoccidioides brasiliensis.
