Abstract

A severe pelvic infection resulting in a tuboovarian abscess after transcervical embryo transfer is reported. The case is unique in that the recipient was an agonadal woman who had not undergone prior transvaginal aspiration. Although rare, pelvic infection after embryo transfer may occur in spite of normal precautions.
