Asherman syndrome

Discussion:

The patient had a previous history of uterine curettage abortion at age 16. Also, at age 24, the patient had a suspected appendicitis, but the laparoscopy demonstrated right salpingitis. Appendectomy was then performed in the same manner.

The findings described of intrauterine adhesions on hysterosalpingography are consistent with the previous history of uterine curettage, the main cause of Asherman syndrome

In addition to this finding, hydrosalpinx on the left was also identified, which can be a tubal cause of infertility. This condition is closely associated with pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), usually caused by organisms such as chlamydia or gonococcus. The history of suspected appendicitis which turned out to be salpingitis also illustrates that the disease was bilateral and had probably just left sequelae.
