By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 01/30/2019

Salpingitis isthmica nosoda, also known as diverticulosis of the Fallopian tube, consists of a nodular thickening of the isthmic portion of the fallopian tubes, although it can also affect their entirety.

It is a progressive and irreversible process that causes infertility and an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy.

The exact cause of this alteration is unknown, although it is most likely to be of an inflammatory origin.
