Abstract

Genital tuberculosis is a bacterial infection still frequent in less developed countries where lots of cases are not diagnosed nor treated. In this work we describe a rare case of primary endometrial tuberculosis in a woman of 50 years old. The diagnosis was confirmed by an ultrasonography of the pelvis and an endometrial biopsy followed by a histological examination. The patient after the diagnosis was put under antiturbecular treatment for six months with complete healing.
