Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A study was made of women with postmenopausal tuberculosis of the genital tract investigated between January 1, 1951, and March 1, 1981. Twenty-six of 701 patients (3.7%) with proved gynecologic tuberculosis had postmenopausal infection. The age incidence of gynecologic tuberculosis has changed in recent years; the proportion of patients over 40 years of age is now much higher than in the past. Since January 1, 1976, a combination of rifampicin, ethambutol, and isoniazid has been employed in the treatment of this disease. Six new cases treated with this drug program are described. No patient showed evidence of recurrence at follow-up.
