Percutaneous drainage of abdominal and retroperitoneal abscesses has become a widely practiced alternative to surgery in selected patients. Although such techniques and results have been widely reported in adults, these series do not include reports of percutaneous drainage in children. We report the percutanous drainage of a psoas abscess in a young child to emphasize that interventional radiologic techniques can be effective even in very young children.
