Life-threatening intrauterine infection with Clostridium perfringens
In this case report, a 40-year-old woman with a history of a uterine leiomyoma presented with abdominal pain and fever. Initially, her symptoms were associated with a bleeding from an ovarian cyst seen on a CT scan of the abdomen showing free intraperitoneal fluid surrounding the internal genitals. Meanwhile, her blood cultures came out positive for Clostridium perfringens, and her condition deteriorated despite intravenous antibiotics. A new CT scan revealed intrauterine gas development. A laparotomy was performed with removal of the internal genitals, and the patient improved on continuous antibiotics.
