We experienced a case of abdominal wall abscess originated from abdominal wall hematoma in 3 year old girl, who complained of abdominal pain, fever and lethargy. On admission, abdominal ultrasonography, abdominal computed tomography, and diagnostic needle aspiration were performed. Incision was made over the abscess so necrotic tissue and pus were evacuated. A nelaton catheter drain was placed into abscess cavity and, irrigation was done daily with normal saline mixed with antibiotics. Postoperative course was uncomplicated and the patient was discharged on 17th hospital day.
