A 77-year-old client got admitted to Mahatma Gandhi Medical College and Research Institute with the signs and symptoms of swelling in the right-side lower back and pain with discharge. He has been diagnosed to have carbuncle–right lumbar disorder. Carbuncle is a rare condition that may be misdiagnosed clinically, because of the atypical nature of the disease. Hence, a clear clinical picture is necessary for the identification and correct diagnosis of the case.
