Bilateral Pyosalpinx as A Rare Cause Of Pelvic Cystic Lesions In A 12-Year Old Girl- Abstract

Carolin Schmieg, Markus Ebert, Bertram Reingruber, Christian Knorr




Pyosalpinx is a rare condition in a 12-year old virgin female patient. We report a case caused by infection with E. coli. A history of previous laparotomy may have contributed to salpinges dysmotility. As possible causes we discuss infective and postsurgical complications. Reports of association with Hirschsprung’s disease are reviewed focusing on similarities to our case.
