Abstract Cervical cancer can be presented as an unusual and aggressive manner in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive women. There are case reports of psoas abscess which mimick metastasis from cervical carcinoma in HIV-positive patients. However, such cases are very rare in HIV-negative women with only few case reports available in the literature. We report one case of psoas abscess mimicking metastasis in a HIV-negative woman, which was initially diagnosed as spinal tuberculosis.
