Interventional radiology is a minimally invasive therapeutic approach that may be of benefit for some gynecological conditions. We present the case of a 40-year-old nulliparous woman with postoperative pyometra following open myomectomy who was considered for a hysterectomy, but the gynecologist requested that an attempt be made at percutaneous drainage of the abscess to salvage her uterus. We achieved a successful computed-tomography-guided percutaneous drainage of the abscess.
