pyosalpinx py·o·sal·pinx (pī'ə-sāl'pĭngks)
Distention of a fallopian tube with pus.
The occluded tube may now have an accumulation of pus in it (pyosalpinx).
The most frequent form of tubal gonorrhea is pyosalpinx, or pus tube.
A hydrosalpinx is like a pyosalpinx, with both tubal ends sealed, except that its content is a serous or watery fluid.
When the condition advances so far that the external abdominal ostium of the tube is closed, a pyosalpinx forms.
