In brief: Infection

Pelvic inflammatory disease (pid) is an infectious process and the first line of treatment is with antibiotics, not surgery.

In brief: PID

If acute , antibiotics is treatment of choice.
If abcess formation drainage is advised if peritonitis or severe abdominal pain surgery maybe option.
