66 year old man had herniorrhaphy done for left inguinal hernia 3 weeks ago. The operation was uneventful.
Soon after discharge, he developed low grade fever and had frequent vomiting. Ultrasound done today showed a collection of fluid about 2cm under the site of incision. This is consistent with abscess formation.
A fine needle aspiration was done and 9cc of pus and serous fluid was aspirated. He was also started on iv antibiotics.
