Development of pelvic abscess following water-skiing injury

, : Development of pelvic abscess following water-skiing injury. Infectious Diseases in Obstetrics and Gynecology 1(1): 49-50

Several descriptions of hydrostatic injuries while water-skilng have been described, including lacerations of the perineum, vagina, and cervix. Salpingitis or pelvic abscess resulting from water-skiing injuries are rare but important complications. A case of a pelvic abscess following a fall while water-skiing is described. The abscess was drained laparoscopically, resulting in a good clinical outcome. The mechanism of injury and recommendations for prevention are also presented. Upper genital tract infection may result from water-skiing injuries due to hydrostatic pressure forcing bacteria and water through the vagina and cervix into the endometrium, fallopian tube, and peritoneal cavity. While an uncommon complication, physicians and other practitioners caring for women should be aware of this potential complication from water-skiing.
