What is hematosalpinx?

Hematosalpinx refers to the accumulation of blood inside one or both fallopian tubes of a woman. This medical alteration may be caused by an ectopic pregnancy. In addition, hematosalpinx is also related to endometriosis and tubal carcinoma.

The most characteristic symptoms of hematosalpinx in women are pelvic pain and uterine bleeding. Therefore, performing a gynecological ultrasound will be able to diagnose this condition.
