A Case Report of Tubo-ovarian Abscess Following Saline Infusion Sonohysterography

Isarin Thanaboonyawat, Somsin Petyim


Saline infusion sonohysterography (SIS) is a widely used procedure for intrauterine lesion diagnosis. It has few side effects and complications. The authors present a case report of a middle-aged Thai woman who presented with metrorrhagia. Malignancy had been ruled out with fractional curettage. Despite hormonal treatment, she had persistent metrorrhagia. SIS was performed and a tubo-ovarian abscess developed. Exploratory laparotomy with TAH and BSO were carried out for treatment.
