A case of Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome in a 32-year-old para 1+1 is reported. She presented with inability to conceive of 4 years duration. Her husband's semen analysis was within normal range. She had a hysterosalpingogram that showed bilateral tubal blockage and clinical assessment showed right sided abdominal tenderness, cervical excitation tenderness, and adnexa tenderness. The endocervical swab test for Chlamydia trachomatis was a positive. Laparoscopy and dye test showed adhesion bands on the under surface of the liver (the violin string appearance). She recovered well postoperatively. The couple received ofloxacin and metronidazole for 2 weeks. Literatures on Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome presentation, pathogenesis, and management were reviewed.
