Dr. M. D. Kerketta | Dr. Vivek Bhasker [4]

Abstract: Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a common disorder of the female genital tract which commonly occurs due to ascending infection1. If not treated properly, it can lead to formation of abscesses and peritonitis1, 2. Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Chlamydia trachomatis are the two most common causative micro-organisms. Tubercular involvement of genital tract is occasionally seen and rarely it present as tubo-ovarian abscess4. Here we present a case of pelvic mass which was considered to be an ovarian tumor preoperatively. On exploration tubo-ovarian abscess was found and on histo-pathologic examination of the excised tissue, diagnosis of tubercular tubo-ovarian abscess was made.
