Close. We report follow-up of a case initially published in Pediatric Dermatology in 2001 of a 13-year-old boy with a history of inflammatory skin lesions and neutropenia who developed neutrophilic dermatoses precipitated by G-CSF. Boils are caused by bacteria building up in a hair follicle and pushing up to the surface of the skin. Abscess formation following immunisation is a previously reported complication, generally associated with microbial contamination of the vaccine. Abscess is usually caused by staphylococcus aureus bacterial infection in an injured skin. Recurrent Sterile Abscesses in a Case of X-linked Neutropenia Pediatr Dermatol. In our current case, the sterile seroma developed after percutaneous drainage of an acute iliacus muscle abscess. Most abscesses can be managed at home. Background: It is well documented that the number of visits to the ED for abscesses is on the rise in the US, with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) being the most common cause of purulent skin and soft-tissue infections.
