Abstract A 53-year-old healthy lady who underwent a planned laparoscopic surgery for the removal of gall stones presented with mildly tender fluctuant
swelling along the line of surgical scar which did not respond in spite of various antibiotics.
Other uncommon presentations include; a typical undermined tuberculous ulcer, purulent discharge from the nipple or with a fluctuant
swelling which, if inadvertently incised, produces a discharging ulcer.
Epidermoid cysts occasionally become inflamed, developing into a fluctuant
soft-tissue swelling surrounded by erythema and containing a localised collection of purulent material.
With uncontrolled infection, the firm nodes are replaced by a palpable fluctuant
mass (suppurative adenitis), which may require drainage.
The lesion on palpation was found to be soft, fluctuant
in consistency and mobile in nature.
If prompt clinical improvement does not occur or if the swelling becomes fluctuant
, incision and drainage should be performed.
