Misdiagnosis of Pelvic inflammatory disease

Pelvic inflammatory disease: Misdiagnosis

A prompt diagnosis and treatment of pelvic inflammatory disease infection increases the chances of preserving fertility and preventing other complications, such as ectopic pregnancy, and chronic pelvic pain.

A diagnosis of pelvic inflammatory disease can be missed or delayed because there may be no symptoms in the earliest, most curable stage. When symptoms do occur, they can be similar to symptoms of certain other diseases, such as appendicitis, food poisoning or food borne illness, ruptured ovarian cyst, diverticulitis, and ovarian torsion. Because of these factors, it is important to have regular medical care throughout a lifetime in order to maximize the chances of early diagnosis and treatment.
