Abstract

Severe pelvic inflammatory disease and tuboovarian abscesses (TOAs) are common pelvic infections requiring inpatient admission. There are few large randomized trials guiding appropriate clinical management of TOA, including antibiotic selection and timing of surgical management and drainage. The pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management of severe pelvic inflammatory disease and TOA are summarized and reviewed from the most current literature.
