  • CHLAMYDIA-TRACHOMATIS FITZ-HUGH-CURTIS SYNDROME WITHOUT SALPINGITIS IN FEMALE ADOLESCENTS AMERICAN JOURNAL OF DISEASES OF CHILDREN Katzman, D. K., Friedman, I. M., McDonald, C. A., Litt, I. F. 1988; 142 (9): 996-998

    Abstract:

    We encountered seven female adolescents with the Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome and no signs or symptoms of salpingitis. Six of the patients had cervical cultures positive for Chlamydia trachomatis. The Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome should be included in the differential diagnosis of right-sided abdominal pain in the sexually active female adolescent to avoid unnecessary diagnostic procedures and to reduce the prevalence of chlamydial infection and its complications.
