Abstract

An abscess is a collection of bacterial detritus inside of a tissue in the body that can create micro or macro communications with deeper regions if they are not treated on time. Some bacteria can produce necrotizing soft tissue infections that spreads rapidly through the subcutaneous tissue and fascia, producing rapid tissue necrosis. Situation may be more complicated in patients with multiple comorbidities. It reports the case of a young adult patient with insulin-dependent Diabetes Mellitus with poor metabolic control and a history of analgesics and corticosteroids injections in the gluteal region who was diagnosed with COVID-19 and then bilateral gluteal abscess with compromise of the fascia and the muscle in the first weeks of hospitalization.
