Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome: a diagnostic challenge.

Clin Case Rep 2018 Jul 2;6(7):1396-1397. Epub 2018 Jun 2.

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital London UK.

Diagnosis of Fitz-Hugh-Curtis is challenging due to its rarity and its similar presentation to common intra-abdominal conditions, such as cholecystitis or appendicitis. In our case, the adherent cecal and omental mass felt on examination were thought to be an appendiceal mass secondary to perforation, hence the patient underwent a diagnostic laparoscopy. Read More

Acta Clin Belg 2015 Oct;70(5):357-8

Department of Emergency, CHU Dinant Godinne, Université catholique de Louvain , Yvoir, Belgium.

Fitz-Hugh-Curtis (FHC) syndrome, also known as acute perihepatitis, was discovered in 1930 and is a rare disorder characterised by inflammation of the peritoneum and the tissues surrounding the liver. This syndrome can arise as a potential complication from a pelvic inflammatory disease caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae or Chlamydia trachomatis. This syndrome is not well known in the medical community and is often underdiagnosed. Read More

Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome is a type of perihepatitis that causes liver capsular infection without infecting the hepatic parenchyma or pelvis. Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome is known to occur commonly in women of childbearing age who do not use oral contraceptives and have sexual partners older than 25 years of age. However, the syndrome has been reported to occur rarely in males. Read More

Sexual health issues in adolescents and young adults.

Clin Med (Lond) 2015 Oct;15(5):447-51

Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Swindon, UK

Adolescence is a time of sexual risk-taking and experimentation but also vulnerability. Young people may present to general physicians with systemic symptoms of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), such as arthritis, hepatitis or rash, but may not necessarily volunteer information about sexual activity. It is important for physicians to ask directly about sexual risks and if appropriate test for STIs and pregnancy. Read More

Does the Degree of Perihepatitis Have Any Relevance to the Severity of the Manifestations of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease on Multidetector Computed Tomography?

J Comput Assist Tomogr 2015 Nov-Dec;39(6):901-6

From the Department of Radiology, Kyung Hee University Hospital at Gangdong, School of Medicine, Kyung Hee University, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Purpose: This study aimed to evaluate the relationship between the degree of perihepatitis and the severity of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) on multidetector computed tomography (MDCT).

Methods: A total of 177 women with PID who underwent biphasic abdominal computed tomography (CT) scans were enrolled. Two reviewers retrospectively reviewed the CT scans with consensus and subjectively categorized the severity of PID into 4 grades (normal, mild, moderate, and severe). Read More

Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome: clinical diagnostic value of dynamic enhanced MSCT.

J Phys Ther Sci 2015 Jun 30;27(6):1641-4. Epub 2015 Jun 30.

Medical Imaging Research Institute, Binzhou Medical University, China.

[Purpose] This study aimed to investigate the clinical diagnostic value of dynamic enhanced multislice computed tomography (MSCT) for Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome (FHCS). [Subjects and Methods] This study retrospectively analyzed the clinical features and manifestations of scanning and dynamic enhanced MSCT in 19 patients with FHCS. [Results] MSCT scans showed different degrees of liver capsule thickness in the lesion area: seven cases of sub-capsular effusion and three cases with a small amount of pleural effusion; thickness of the liver capsular arterial phase showing significant enhancement in 17 cases, and slight enhancement in two; portal venous and delayed phase enhancement decreased with no clear boundary of the liver parenchyma; and adjacent hepatic parenchymal involvement in five cases, in which the arterial phase appeared to have patchy or triangular enhancement, and unclear portal vein and delayed phase imaging findings.

Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome in a male patient due to urinary tract infection.

Clin Imaging 2015 Sep-Oct;39(5):917-9. Epub 2015 Apr 25.

Department of Emergency Medicine, Research Institute of Clinical Medicine of Chonbuk National University-Biomedical Research Institute of Chonbuk National University Hospital, Jeonju, Korea. Electronic address:

Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome (FHCS) is inflammation of the liver capsule usually associated with pelvic inflammatory disease. FHCS has been rarely reported in male patients, and hematogenous and lymphatic spread to the liver is thought to be the underlying mechanism. Although a confirmatory diagnosis was made by laparoscopy, contrast-enhanced computed tomography scan is considered the first-line imaging tool in clinical diagnosis of FHCS. Read More
