1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

If it is inadequately drained or if ineffective antibiotics are used or if antibiotics are stopped too soon a psoas abscess can recur. These are frequently associated with discitis and vertebral osteomyelitis which if not adequately treated can lead to recurrence of the psoas abscess.
