[Management of tubo-ovarian abscesses and complicated pelvic inflammatory disease: CNGOF and SPILF Pelvic Inflammatory Diseases Guidelines].

Gynecol Obstet Fertil Senol 2019 Mar 14. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Service de gynécologie, CMCO, pôle de gynécologie des hôpitaux universitaires de Strasbourg, 19, rue Louis-Pasteur, 67300 Schiltigheim, France.

A tubo-ovarian abscess (ATO) should be suspected in a context of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) in case of severe pain associated with the presence of general signs and palpation of an adnexal mass at pelvic examination. Imaging allows most often a rapid diagnosis, by ultrasound or CT, the latter being irradiant but also allowing to consider the differential diagnoses (digestive or urinary diseases) in case of pelvic pain. MRI, non-irradiating examination, whenever it is feasible, provides relevant information, more efficient, guiding quickly the diagnosis. Read More

Ectopic inferior vena cava thrombus secondary to a tubo-ovarian abscess.

Med J Malaysia 2014 Dec;69(6):293-5

RIPAS Hospital, Division of Medicine, Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Muara District BU, Brunei Darussalam.

Inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombosis typically arises distally from a thrombophlebitic extension in the pelvis or the lower extremities. It may also occur from propagation of an ovarian vein thrombosis as a result of gynaecological disorders such as pelvic inflammatory disease, endometritis or from pelvic surgeries. In this report, we present an interesting case of a tubo-ovarian abscess with an ectopic IVC thrombus. Read More

Risk factors for adverse clinical outcomes in patients with tubo-ovarian abscess.

J Obstet Gynaecol 2015 29;35(7):699-702. Epub 2014 Dec 29.

a Zekai Tahir Burak Women's Health Education and Research Hospital , Ankara , Turkey.

This study assessed the risk factors for poor clinical outcomes in patients with tubo-ovarian abscess (TOA). Patients managed with medical therapy and discharged within 7 days without complications constituted the favourable prognosis group (n = 22), whereas those who were managed surgically or discharged after 7 days of antibiotic therapy constituted the poor prognosis group (n = 87). Variables including age, gravidity, number of dilation and curettage procedures, caesarean delivery, smoking status, serum C-reactive protein levels, serum white blood count, body temperature, abscess diameter, presence of an intrauterine device (IUD), duration of IUD placement and length of hospitalisation were evaluated to assess their relationship with the clinical prognosis of TOA.
