Abstract: Pyometra is a pus accumulation in the endometrium cavity, with an incidence from 0.02% to 1.5%. The benign senile pyometra is a disease mainly reported in elder women, with an average age of 74 years. We present the case of a 59-year-old woman with the diagnosis of benign senile pyometra. The patient came to our service presenting purulent vaginal discharge, in bad condition with pelvic pain and altered hematic cytology. In the physical examination a pelvic mass was found, in the vaginal examination, the cervix was found estenotic, and the hysterometer could not be introduced. The image studies revealed an increased size of the uterus was liquid collection in its interior, compatible with blood or pus. We performed exploratory laparotomy, founding two abscecess in the uterin fundus which suffered rupture during the procedure. Abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpigooforectomy was performed, there were not other complications. Post surgical period was managed with antibiotics and close surveillance. The patient was discharged four days later with good response to the treatment. In the anatomophatological study no evidence of cervical or endometrial neoplasia was found.
