Abstract

Coccydynia is a syndrome that rheumatologists encounter frequently in the form of tailbone pain, which is usually worse when sitting. Although the most common origin is trauma, there are several other possible causes of pain in the coccyx. We present an unusual case in which coccydynia developed shortly after the insertion of a contraceptive vaginal ring and remitted completely upon removal of this system.

Resumen

La coccigodinia es un síndrome que se presenta con frecuencia en las consultas de Reumatología en forma de dolor en punta terminal del coxis, empeorando habitualmente al sentarse. Aunque la causa más frecuente es la postraumática local, existen diversas causas de dolor en el coxis. Presentamos un caso inhabitual en el que la coccigodinia comenzó poco después de instaurar un sistema de anticoncepción por anillo vaginal y remitió completamente al retirar este sistema.
