  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 44-year old woman complained of fever, lower abdomi-nal pain and lumbago. She had intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD) inserted for 10 years. CT and MRI showed right hydronephrosis due to adnexal mass obstructing right ureter. The patient underwent resection of the mass (rt. salpingo-oophorectomy) and right ureterolysis. The pathological diagnosis was salpingo-oophoritis. IUD use was thought to be the risk factor of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). We should remember gynecologic inflam-matory disease in the differential diagnosis of extrinsic ureteral obstruction.
