    What’s your diagnosis, based on this hysterosalpingography?

    I’ll post the correct answer in a few days!

    A hydrosalpinx appears as a large-sausage-shaped dilation of the tubes

    Correct answer:

    Hydrosalpinx.

    This is a distally blocked fallopian tube filled with serous or clear fluid. It’s most commonly a result of a PID, mainly chlamydia and gonorrhea. It can also be caused by TB.

    I admit, it’s not the most characteristic HSG-finding. This one does show a sausage shaped fallopian tube (I didn’t see it, at the time):
