Abstract

Abscess formation is one of the most common complications of intramuscular injections, a procedure routinely performed in the hospital settings. Though the incidence of such complications is low among the overall recipients of intramuscular injections, it may cause considerable morbidity among those who suffer such complications. In our study, all patients with post intramuscular injection abscess at gluteal and deltoid region were compared for a difference in the patterns of the causative organisms at these two sites. Thus a retrospective analysis of cases was done in reference to the past seven years. It was observed that Staphylococcus aureus was the most common organism at the two sites. However Escherichia coli was isolated only from the gluteal region.

Keywords: Gluteal abscess, Deltoid abscess, Complications, Intramuscular injection.
