Chlamydia trachomatis as an etiological agent in the Fitz‐Hugh‐Curtis syndrome has recently been reported; however, the condition has not been typically associated with ascites. We report a case of Chlamydia trachomatis perihepatitis in a young woman who had exudative ascites as a predominant clinical feature of her disease. Laparoscopy revealed characteristic “violin string” adhesions which were also identified on abdominal computerized tomographic scan.
