The sonographic diagnosis of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a challenge for the sonographer. Sonographic diagnosis is possible when tube enlarges and liquid accumulates inside the fallopian tube, a sign that can be detected with vaginal probes. As the disease progresses, more complex images are found depending on the enlarging of the adnexa and the accumulation of necrotic material. Sonography allows a sensitive diagnostic suspicion in the case of women with clinical and epidemiologic criteria for PID.
