Salpingitis is inflammation of the fallopian tubes, which lie
between the uterus and the ovaries. This occurs most often as a complication of
an infection of a woman's reproductive organs.
Salpingitis may cause dull, cramping lower abdominal pain, fever,
vaginal discharge, and fertility problems. Antibiotics and sometimes surgery
are used to treat the condition.
