Perihepatitis, or Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome, is a localized fibrinous inflammation affecting the anterior surface of the liver and the adjacent parietal peritoneum. Perihepatitis, first described by Stajano in 1920, is almost always associated with acute salpingitis. Curtis (1930) described the typical “violin string” adhesions between the liver and the abdominal wall in patients with previous salpingitis.
