Abstract

The estimated risk of pelvic inflammatory disease in 15- to 19-year old females is 1:8. If current trends continue, 50 per cent of young women aged 15 years old in 1970 will have experienced at least one episode of PID by the year 2000. This article reviews the current state-of-the-art understanding and management of this disease in the adolescent female.
