Septic Pelvic Thrombophlebitis: Sensitivity and Specificity

Introduction: Infectious thrombosis (thrombophlebitis) of the ovarian veins is an uncommon complication of pregnancy (delivery) or gynecologic surgery. However, the diagnosis is often difficult to establish and requires a high degree of suspicion.

The sensitivity and specificity of findings for Septic Pelvic Thrombophlebitis are listed below. See the left navigation bar to change the display.

**Note that calculating probabilities from more than one finding is inherently inaccurate because findings are not independent. (For example, using two positive findings that share a common pathogenesis is likely to overestimate the true probability.)
