Hello,

Welcome and thank you for your question.

A pyosalpinx is caused by infection and inflammation of the tube - the commonest cause being pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) caused by infection with an organism called Chlamydia trachomatis.

Chlamydia can be a silent infection causing no symptoms. but it inflames and destroys the inner lining of the tube leading to collection of pus (which is then called pyosalpinx) and blood ( called hematosalpinx). Other bacteria can also cause PID.

Fluid in the uterine cornu is a reaction to the pyosalpinx.

The best treatment is strong antibiotics and removal of the tube. This will help to preserve the other tube.

I hope this helps.

i was tested for everything and PID and all negative.. That why its so concerning is there anyway my tube can be saved without being removed.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr.M.D.Mazumdar, Doctor replied 1 month ago

Pyosalpinx means a tube with pus. If pus is present, then there has to be an infection.

Once pyosalpinx has occurred, I am afraid that the tube cannot be saved. Even if the tube is not removed, it will not be functional. Plus it can cause spread of the infection to other organs in the pelvis. It is better to remove it.

I hope this helps.

I've been to the same OBGYN since 2015, and was recently diagnosed with Chlamydia. My Dr.'s office claims that they've never tested me for it before, since I didn't specifically ask for an extra culture to do so. This has been very stressful, since I'm in a committed relationship and my boyfriend also tested positive for Chlamydia after we had sex unprotected for the first time last month. He has been tested for Chalmydia in previous years that we've been together (a condom broke once, and he's performed oral sex on me many times) and tested negative for Chlamydia in the past (2015, 2016, and 2017). My question is...is it possible for Chlamydia to lay dormant in a woman for 2 1/2 years? and is it typical that an OBGYN would not automatically test for STD's with the culture swab? and why would we receive different medications with different follow up windows (I was told to come back in three weeks. He was told to come back in three months)? Thank you. … read more
