... diagnosed wit fitz-hugh-curtis syndrome in hospital apparently this is caused by an std... iv been wit my partner for 8 months and am now very confused... how long could i of had this..is it from d past or from him...
"Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome occurs almost exclusively in women. It is usually caused by gonorrhoea (acute gonococcal perihepatitis) or chlamydia bacteria, which cause a thinning of cervical mucus and allow bacteria from the vagina into the uterus and oviducts, causing infection and inflammation. Occasionally, this inflammation can cause scar tissue to form on Glisson's capsule, a thin layer of connective tissue surrounding the liver."
This is all the info I have found so far. I will continue to do a search, but it's a difficult syndrome to get info on... it may be something that has been "lingering" in your system for a while. I will try my best to get specifics for you.
