Puerperal infections are a leading cause of morbidity even in the present era especially in developing countries. With advent of potent antibiotics most of the cases are managed conservatively, however resistant cases still warrant a surgical exploration. Traditionally it meant laparotomy, however with improving minimal invasive techniques and skills laparoscopy might be a suitable alternative in properly selected patients. We report our experience of successful management of one such case laparoscopically.
Key words: Puerperal infection, pelvic abscess, laparoscopy.
