Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome is an extrapelvic manifestation of sexually transmitted infections. Partly because of the lack of specific clinical and laboratory features, this diagnosis is often missed or delayed. We describe a series of cases of patients with Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome, where the diagnosis was initially not recognized and patients underwent extensive evaluations for their symptoms. Based on our experience, we also describe shared historical and physical features that may be useful in enhancing the recognition of patients with this disease.
