Pyomyositis is rare infective disease that form pyogenic abscess in skeletal muscles without circumference tissue infections. It is more common in tropical climate but less in temperate zone. The reports of pyomyositis occurred in temperate zone have predisposing factors; Diabetics, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and the others. The treatment of pyomyositis during the initial stage is with intravenous anti-biotics alone. As S. aureus is the most common pathogen, empirical treatment with flucloxacillin is appropriate. Addition of an aminoglycoside achieves a synergistic effect and should be instituted in patients with diabetes or during the septic stage. With abscess formation, drainage of the purulent collection with concurrent use of antibiotic therapy is required.
