Chlamydia trachomatis Fitz-Hugh-Curtis Syndrome Without Salpingitis in Female Adolescents

Am J Dis Child. 1988;142(9):996-998. doi:10.1001/archpedi.1988.02150090094033

• 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.
