OBJECTIVE: To evaluate hysteroscopic findings of infertile women with genital tuberculosis. METHOD: A retrospective study of the records of 94 women who underwent diagnostic hysteroscopy for infertility at All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India. Genital tuberculosis was diagnosed by laboratory studies of an endometrial biopsy and/or laparoscopic findings. RESULTS: For women with primary or secondary infertility, respectively, the hysteroscopic findings were normal in 15 (20.5%) vs 4 (9%) cases; and adhesions were grade 2 in 11 (15.1%) vs 3 (14) cases, grade 2a in 0 vs 1 (1.4%) cases, grade 3 in 11 (15.1%) vs 9 (42.9%) cases, grade 3b in 6 (8.2%) vs 0 cases, and grade 4 in 28 (38.4%) vs 2 (9.5%) cases. CONCLUSION: Genital tuberculosis causes significant pelvic morbidity due to uterine adhesions and infertility.
