Abstract

Coincident with the epidemic of gonorrhea and other venereally transmitted infections in the United States, there has been an increase in the incidence of acute salpingitis. Salpingitis, one of the most common acute gynecologic problems, is responsible for 5% to 20% of gynecologic admissions to large medical centers in the United States. It has been estimated that 250,000 to 272,000 women with salpingitis are admitted to hospitals in the United States each year and that two to three times as many are treated as outpatients. Although many physicians have viewed salpingitis and gonorrhea as a problem for venereal disease clinics and public hospitals, Center for Disease Control figures show that 3.7 times as much gonorrhea is treated by private physicians as by VD clinics and public hospitals. Ten percent to 17% of women with untreated endocervical gonorrhea will develop salpingitis.
