INTRODUCTION: Actinomycosis is a chronic bacterial infection caused by Actinomyces, Gram-positive anaerobic bacteria. Its symptomatology imitates some malignant pelvic tumours, tuberculosis, or nocardiosis, causing abscesses and fistulas. Actinomycoses are opportunistic infections and require normal mucous barriers to be altered. No epidemiological studies have been conducted to determine prevalence or incidence of such infections. OBJECTIVE: To analyse the clinical cases of pelvic actinomycosis reported worldwide, to update the information about the disease...

Obturator internus muscle (OIM) abscess is an uncommon condition often mistaken for bacterial infection of the hip joint. If the OIM abscess is accompanied by a septic hip, it becomes more difficult to make a diagnosis. Surgical drainage of OIM abscess is difficult because it is located at a deep part of the pelvic cavity. Therefore, intravenous antibiotic therapy or image-guided aspiration were used as a treatment method instead of surgical drainage. When drainage of the abscess was inadequate, prolonged antibiotic treatment was necessary...

INTRODUCTION: Even decades after the development of effective low-cost antibiotics, sepsis persists as the foremost cause of preventable maternal death worldwide. In developing countries like India, where the paramount impediment to intervention is poverty, maternal mortality due to sepsis is a continuing representation of maternal health inequality. AIM: To determine the incidence, risk factors and mortality in women presenting with puerperal sepsis in a tertiary care health facility in India...

Pyosalpinx is a severe sequel of chronic pelvic inflammatory disease, whereby the fallopian tubes become filled with pus.(1 2) Pyosalpinx often affects sexually active women and rarely is seen in celibate adolescent girls.(3) We report a case of a 12-year-old girl with no prior sexual history who presented to our emergency department with complaints of severe right lower quadrant pain of 1-day duration. Ultrasonography and CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis revealed free fluid collections in the pelvis without visualisation of the appendix...

The article describes open surgical modalities for managing patients with severe obliterations of the anterior urethra. The mean age of patients was 70 years. The causes of urethral strictures and obliteration included prostatic adenomectomy, scrotal abscess with pelvic bone osteomyelitis, accidental removal of the bulbar and penile urethra during herniotomy and a prolonged use of an indwelling urethral catheter. Two patients underwent perineostomy (median and trapezoidal). In the third patient, scrotal skin was used to form "scrotal hypospadias" (a modified Johansons operation) and the fourth patient underwent Mikhalovskiis operation...

Crohn's disease (CD) is a chronic inflammatory disorder that may involve any part of the gastrointestinal tract. Acute manifestations in female internal reproductive organs are rare and have been described in only a few cases. A 27-year-old nulligravida diagnosed with CD presented with pelvic pain, fever, and a palpable mass (confirmed by ultrasound) in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen. She underwent diagnostic laparoscopy because of worsening symptoms suggestive of a tubo-ovarian abscess. The right adnexa were excised after adhesiolysis...

PURPOSE: Recurrent diverticulitis has been reported in 30-50% of patients who recover from an episode of diverticular-associated abscess. Our aim was to review the outcomes of patients who underwent non-operative management after percutaneous drainage (PD) of colonic diverticular abscess. METHODS: All patients with a diverticular-associated abscess were identified between 2001 and 2012. Individual charts were queried for peri-procedural data and follow-up. The most recent follow-up data were acquired via the electronic medical record or telephone call...

Actinomycosis is a chronic or subacute bacterial infection characterized by large abscess formation, caused mainly by the gram-positive non-acid-fast, anaerobic, or microaerophilic/capnophilic, obligate parasites bacteria from the Actinomyces genus. Although pelvic inflammatory disease is an entity associated with the longstanding use of intrauterine devices (IUDs), actinomycosis is not one of the most frequent infections associated with IUDs. We present the case of a 43-year-old female patient who was referred to the emergency facility because of a 20-day history of abdominal pain with signs of peritoneal irritation...

A 23-year-old Japanese woman presented with abdominal distention following fever, diarrhea, and abdominal pain during a stay in Taiwan. Serology for the detection of amebic-antibodies and stool microscopic examination were both negative. A computed tomography scan showed a 13 cm diameter abscess spreading from the lower abdominal wall to the pelvic retroperitoneal space. Needle aspiration of the abscess was done under computed tomography guidance, and microscopy of the aspirated fluid revealed trophozoites of Entamoeba...

Aggressive angiomyxoma (AAM) is a rare mesenchymal tumor that usually occurs in the pelvis and perineum of young females. AAM can simulate Bartholin's gland cyst, abscess, lipoma, simple labial cyst, or other pelvic soft tissue tumors. Here we present five cases of AAM with mean age of 42. The patients mainly presented slow-growing mass in the abdomen and perineum (3 cases in the pelvis, 1 in the vulva, and 1 in the buttock). Color Doppler flow imaging revealed blood flow for the 3 pelvic lesions. Enhanced computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of the other 2 cases showed the typical "swirled" or "layered" structure characteristic...

Vaginal cuff dehiscence is a rare but serious complication that can develop after hysterectomy. Emergent surgical intervention is required for vaginal cuff dehiscence due to the potential subsequent vaginal evisceration, which may lead to necrosis of the small bowel. A 62-year-old nulliparous woman with a 30-year history of smoking, diabetes mellitus, and rheumatoid arthritis (treated with oral steroids) presented with a vaginal cuff dehiscence. Thirty-eight days before the admission, she had undergone a radical operation including total abdominal hysterectomy for uterine corpus cancer at another hospital...

RATIONALE: Psoas abscesses generally arise from a contiguous intra-abdominal or pelvic infectious process or hematogenous spreading of bacteria. The serum β-human chorionic gonadotropin has been used to detect normal or ectopic pregnancy. It also can be utilized in following up carcinomas. PATIENT CONCERNS: Here, we reported a case of a 47-year-old woman who presented with a left psoas mass presumptively diagnosed as an abscess secondary to lumbar tuberculosis In addition, the patient had abnormal increase of β-human chorionic gonadotropin...

Prostatic abscess (PA) is a rare clinical entity due to a variety of causative organisms including gram-negative bacilli, anaerobic and fungal agents. We report on a 55-year-old, HIV(+) patient presenting with a 2-week history of urethral discharge and a large PA. He was successfully treated with a combination of radiological-guided transperineal drainage plus antibiotics. Treatment decisions in patients with PA are multifactorial and should be made with all diagnostic information available from the most current modes of medical imaging...
