PMID:  2599258     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 40-year-old woman presented with a right adnexal mass. Laparotomy revealed a large tuboovarian abscess due to Staphylococcus aureus. The only significant past medical history was a Cesarean section and bilateral tubal ligation 10 years prior to admission. The tuboovarian abscess, due to this unusual organism, may have developed insidiously over a 10 year period. The patient recovered completely after excision of the abscess and antibiotic treatment.
