Abstract

Background: The aim of this study was to define treatment modalities in tubo-ovarian abscesses (TOA) using a scoring system. As there is no scoring system for TAO there is still a controversy on the management. In our opinion, as there is no evidence based TAO management strategy, a scoring system is needed in the management of these patients. For this purpose we prospectively tried to define that may be useful for favoring a treatment modality and the effects of the parameters on the outcome.
