Concurrent tubo-ovarian abscess and gastroenteritis: A case report.

Case Rep Womens Health 2020 Apr 24;26:e00192. Epub 2020 Mar 24.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Nepean Hospital, Penrith, Australia.

Haematogenous or direct spread of bacterial infection causing pelvic inflammatory disease of the upper female reproductive tract is uncommon. We report a diagnostically challenging case of a 41-year-old woman with a background of Stage 4 endometriosis presenting with fever, diarrhoea and abdominal pain with recent history of pyelonephritis. Initially managed for undifferentiated abdominal pain with unclear focus of infection, a broad range of investigations were undertaken. Read More

Pelvic inflammatory disease among users and non-users of an intrauterine device.

J Obstet Gynaecol 2020 Mar 9:1-6. Epub 2020 Mar 9.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center, Jerusalem, Israel.

The correlation between pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and a present intrauterine device (IUD) has been debated. We aimed to evaluate the differences between IUD users and non-users among women hospitalised with a diagnosis of PID. Our hypothesis was that the role of a present IUD among PID patients is minimal, if any. Read More

Pelvic inflammatory diseases: Updated French guidelines.

J Gynecol Obstet Hum Reprod 2020 May 20;49(5):101714. Epub 2020 Feb 20.

Société de Pathologie Infectieuse de Langue Française (SPILF), 21 rue Beaurepaire, 75010 Paris, France.

Pelvic inflammatory diseases (PID) must be suspected when spontaneous pelvic pain is associated with induced adnexal or uterine pain (grade B). Pelvic ultrasonography is necessary to rule out tubo-ovarian abscess (TOA) (grade C). Microbiological diagnosis requires endocervical and TOA sampling for molecular and bacteriological analysis (grade B). Read More

Case Rep Womens Health 2020 Apr 8;26:e00181. Epub 2020 Feb 8.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Blacktown Hospital, NSW, Australia.

Pneumoperitoneum seen on an X-ray or computed tomography (CT) image points to a diagnosis of ruptured viscus and immediate surgery is warranted. A case of tubo-ovarian abscess (TOA) presenting with pneumoperitoneum is unusual. Very few cases have been reported where the pneumoperitoneum is caused by an abscess involving the adnexa. Read More

Emergency/Internal/Critical Care Medicine, University of Maryland, 110 South Paca Street, 6th Floor, Suite 200, Baltimore, MD 21201, USA. Electronic address:

The emergency medicine provider sees a broad range of pathology involving the female genitourinary system on a daily basis. Must-not-miss diagnoses include pelvic inflammatory disease and ovarian torsion, because these diagnoses can have severe complications and affect future fertility. Although most patients with abnormal uterine bleeding are hemodynamically stable, it can present as a life-threatening emergency and providers should be adept managing severe hemorrhage. Read More

Am Fam Physician 2019 09;100(6):357-364

Via Christi Health, University of Kansas, Wichita, KS, USA.

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection of the upper genital tract occurring predominantly in sexually active young women. Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae are common causes; however, other cervical, enteric, bacterial vaginosis-associated, and respiratory pathogens, including Mycobacterium tuberculosis, may be involved. PID can be acute, chronic, or subclinical and is often underdiagnosed. Read More

Fertility outcomes in patients with tubo-ovarian abscesses after an oocyte retrieval: a longitudinal cohort analysis.

Arch Gynecol Obstet 2019 09 5;300(3):763-769. Epub 2019 Jul 5.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Affiliated to the Sackler School of Medicine, Lis Maternity Hospital, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, Tel Aviv University, 6 Weizmann Street, 6423906, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Purpose: To determine the impact of pelvic inflammation caused by tubo-ovarian abscess (TOA) on ovarian response to stimulation.

Methods: This retrospective longitudinal cohort analysis that was carried out in a tertiary university-affiliated medical center included 15 women with TOA during in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles. The ovarian response to stimulation and the pregnancy rate were compared in two subsequent cycles, the initial IVF cycle that was complicated by TOA after oocyte retrieval (first treatment cycle) and the following IVF treatment (second treatment cycle) that occurred within a period of a year from the first cycle.

Infect Dis Obstet Gynecol 2019 2;2019:4161394. Epub 2019 Jun 2.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, National University Hospital Singapore, Singapore.

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) complicated by tubo-ovarian abscesses (TOA) has long-term sequelae in women of reproductive age. Consensus on the optimal treatment of TOA remains lacking. Most clinicians utilize antibiotics as a first-line conservative approach, failing which invasive intervention is adopted. Read More

Tubo-ovarian abscess with sepsis in a nonagenarian woman: a case report and literature review.

BMC Womens Health 2019 06 19;19(1):81. Epub 2019 Jun 19.

Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, Taipei Veterans General Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.

Background: A complete infectious focus survey relies on a thorough physical examination as well as a pelvic examination. Tubo-ovarian abscess, though less likely to occur in senior women, may become a life-threatening disease requiring emergent surgery. Hence, clinical awareness and aggressive management are warranted to avoid delayed diagnosis and subsequent complications. Read More

The predictive role of CA-125 in the management of tubo-ovarian abscess. A retrospective study.

Eur J Obstet Gynecol Reprod Biol 2019 Jul 6;238:20-24. Epub 2019 May 6.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center, Jerusalem, Israel.

Objective: Tubo-ovarian abscess (TOA) is a well-established sequel of acute pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). While as up to 25% of women will experience conservative treatment failure, the factors associated with treatment failure are not clearly-established, and the role of Cancer antigen 125 (CA-125) is under-studied. We aim to evaluate the role of CA-125 in the conservative management of TOA. Read More

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

Gynecol Obstet Fertil Senol 2019 05 14;47(5):431-441. 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

Actinomyces-Related Tubo-Ovarian Abscess in a Poorly Controlled Type II Diabetic With a Copper Intrauterine Device.

Mil Med 2017 03;182(3):e1874-e1876

Division of Gynecologic Oncology, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, San Antonio Military Medical Center, 3551 Roger Brook Drive, Joint Base San Antonio, Fort Sam Houston, TX 78234.

Background: The historic association of Actinomyces israelii infection with intrauterine devices (IUDs) has long been recognized. In recent years, the risk of developing pelvic inflammatory disease with a copper or levonorgestrel IUD has been less than 1% in women who are low risk for sexually transmitted infections. IUD-related pelvic infections secondary to actinomyces have largely vanished from contemporary practice. Read More
