One-hundred-and-seventy-four patients having hysterosalpingographs during the investigation of infertility have been reviewed to assess the incidence of tubo-cornual polyps and their relation to subsequent pregnancy. Definite polyps were present in 31 (18%) of the patients. There was no significant difference in age or parity in women with and without polyps, nor in associated infertility factors such as tubal occlusion or oligospermia. None of the patients with polyps had endometriosis. Conception rates in the two groups were not significantly different. The cumulative rates at 18 months with and without polyps were 34.5 +/- 13.7% (SE) and 43.6% +/- 3.9% respectively in the overall groups, and 36.9% +/- 24.1% and 59.0% +/- 9.1% in the couples with otherwise unexplained infertility. It is concluded that tubo-cornual polyps are not related to infertility and that they should not be treated.
