A 29-year-old man with painless ulcers on the lumbar and inguinal regions associated with purulent discharge of 1.5 years' duration presented to our outpatient clinic. Dermatological examination revealed palpable nodules, discharging sinuses and scars on the left lumbar, gluteal and inguinal regions. According to the clinical, histopathological, scintigraphy, and magnetic resonance imaging findings as well as mycobacteriological examinations, the patient was diagnosed with Pott's disease with scrofuloderma and psoas abscess. Herein, we present an interesting case of Pott's disease with scrofuloderma and psoas abscess mistreated as hidradenitis suppurativa for a long time.
