Salpingitis is inflammation of the fallopian tubes, which lie between the uterus and the ovaries. This occurs most often as a complication of an infection of a woman's reproductive organs.

Salpingitis may cause dull, cramping lower abdominal pain, fever, vaginal discharge, and fertility problems. Antibiotics and sometimes surgery are used to treat the condition.
