Abstract

Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome (FHCS)-inflammation of the liver capsule (Perihepatitis) associated with genital tract infection-occurs in 4~14% of patients with pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). Generally presenting as sharp, pleuritic right upper quadrant pain, usually but not always accompanied by signs of salpingitis. It needs differential diagnosis such as cholecystitis, pyelonephritis. The pathogenesis of FHCS is incompletely understood. But Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Chlamydia trachomatis are thought to be the primary causative germs of FHCS. We make a report about FHCS in 19-year-old woman who had been sexual history recently.
