Abstract

Pelvic inflammatory disease usually results from ascending cervical or vaginal infection and is often polymicrobial, with usually anaerobic microbial. Xanthogranuloma is a specific type of manifestation of an inflammatory response that may affect various organs usually in association with chronic infection. Xanthogranulomatous oophoritis is a very rare entity and is refers to such inflammatory response affecting the ovaries, frequently complicating a chronic pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). We report a case of bilateral xanthogranulomatous oophoritis secondary to actinomycosis that was associated with multiple liver abscesses, and described the radiological findings.
