Previously sterilized women are generally considered protected against salpingitis. However, when we diagnosed salpingitis by laparoscopy in 48 patients during a 16-month period, we found four (8%) who had been previously sterilized. Therefore, contrary to generally stated belief, salpingitis may occur after interruption of tubal continuity. (Obstet Gynecol, 69:265, 1987)
