The abscess of the Iliopsoas muscle is an unusual situation in the new born. Its diagnosis is difficult due to it’s non-specific symptomatology. We report the case of a 19-day-old, premature and male infant. He presented with an abscess of the left iliopsoas muscle diagnosed by the ultrasound and CT scan pair. The treatment started was an evacuated needle puncture guided by ultra-sound and antibiotic therapy targeting staphylococcus aureus. The evolution was favorable.
