A rarely reported condition, tropical myositis is a microbial condition. Caused most commonly by Staphylococcus aureus, it may also be triggered by Streptococci and Gram-negative bacilli like Klebsiella. A pocket of pus, identifiable on ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging is the usual hallmark. We present a rare case of the disease in a 32-year-old patient who had tropical myositis without any pus collection. The disease ran an extremely aggressive course and despite not being immunocompromised, the patient succumbed to the condition.
