Am J Dis Child. 1985;139(12):1223-1225. doi:10.1001/archpedi.1985.02140140057027

• Two adolescents with psoas muscle abscesses secondary to Crohn's disease are presented. Musculoskeletal signs of hip flexion and scoliosis led to early clinical suspicion. Computed tomography and ultrasonography demonstrated the extent of involvement and allowed specific preoperative diagnosis.
