Abstract

Global endometrial ablation continues to be a frequent therapeutic option for abnormal uterine bleeding. Post ablation bacteremia, a rare clinical occurrence, provides diagnostic and treatment challenges for clinicians. We report a case of post ablation bacteremia from the vaginal flora bacterium Streptococcus anginosus. A definition of post ablation bacteremia syndrome (PABS) and its clinical implications are presented.
