Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome has been described as perihepatitis associated with pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). It is classically seen in premenopausal young women who have right upper quadrant pain, usually but not always accompanied by symptoms of PID, and is frequently confused with biliary tract disease. However, the syndrome has rarely been reported in males. The predominant symptom is right upper quadrant pain, but PID may not be present in male patients. Here, we report a case of Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome in a young male patient, which was diagnosed by serological tests and computed tomography. Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome should be considered as a possible cause of pain in the right upper quadrant in male patients, although such a case is very rare.
