Pelvic abscess complicating an in vitro fertilization pregnancy and review of the literature
In vitro fertilisation has become a very common procedure in the infertility practice due to both accessibility and good success rates.
Complications, however, are constant reminders that no procedure is totally safe. In this paper, we present a case of IVF pregnancy that presented with pelvic abscess, and despite two laparotomies the triplet pregnancy was lost at 22 weeks gestation.
This case highlights the fact that the progression of pelvic infection in pregnancy can be slow.
