Abstract Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection of the upper genital tract occurring predominantly in sexually active young women.

PID can be acute, chronic, or subclinical and is often underdiagnosed. Untreated PID can lead to chronic pelvic pain, infertility, ectopic pregnancy, and intra-abdominal infections. The diagnosis is made primarily on clinical suspicion, and empiric treatment is re...

CONCLUSION: There is a dearth of high-quality studies investigating the predictive value of imminent signs and symptoms of eclampsia. Owing to the small number of studies, heterogeneity, and inconsistent reporting, it is difficult to provide accurate estimates of the predictive value of prodromal symptoms of eclampsia. Of the most commonly reported symptoms-visual disturbances, epigastric pain, and headache-none were able to accurately predict, nor rule out, imminent eclampsia.
