    A pyometra is a collection of pus distending the uterine cavity. It occurs principally when there is a stenosed cervical os, usually due to uterine or cervical malignancy and treatment with radiotherapy. However other causes include:.

    •Fibroid degeneration
    •Cervical occlusion following surgery (e.g. prolapse surgery,endometrial ablation)
    •Senile cervicitis
    •Puerperal infections
    •Congenital cervical anomalies
    •Forgotten intra-uterine device
