Abstract

Female genital tuberculosis is a rare disease in developed countries but it is a frequent cause of chronic pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility in undeveloped countries. A rare case of tubercular endometritis diagnosed at hysteroscopy and successfully treated in a woman with secondary infertility, is presented. As far as we know this is the first case that shows the association between endometrial micropolyps and tubercular endometritis.
