Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection of the upper genital tract in women that can include endometritis, parametritis, salpingitis, oophoritis, tubo-ovarian abscess, and peritonitis. The spectrum of the disease ranges from subclinical and asymptomatic infection to severe, lifethreatening illness; squealae include chronic pelvic pain, ectopic pregnancy, and infertility. In this case we report an uncommon complication of pelvic inflammatory disease, a tubo-uterian fistula. Our case was diagnosed by laparoscopy incidentally during assessment of infertility.
