    An abscess is a localized collection of purulent material surrounded by inflammation and granulation in response to an infectious source. Most simple abscesses can be diagnosed upon clinical examination and safely be managed in the ambulatory office with incision and drainage. Wound culture and antibiotics do not improve healing, but packing wounds larger than 5 cm may reduce recurrence and complications. Copyright © 2021 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
