Abstract

Pyometra, defined as the accumulation of pus in the uterus, is a gynecologic condition that should always be actively drained in order to prevent rupture of the uterus and dissemination of the infection in the peritoneum. Many are the causes described for this disorder and in this paper; we present the first case, to our knowledge, of intraperitoneal sepsis as a possible cause of pyometra.
