    Abstract

    Objective: To study the laparoscopic and hysteroscopic appearances of female genital tract tuberculosis (FGTB). Study design: This is a hospital-based prospective observational study. Materials and methods: The study was conducted in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Vardhman Laparoscopy Centre, from July 1, 2014 to June 31, 2017. A total of 2,200 patients presenting with infertility were subjected to endoscopic evaluation, and the findings suggestive of TB were recorded. Results: Out of total 2,200 patients who underwent endoscopic evaluation for infertility, 33 and 21.5% had findings suggestive of TB on laparoscopy and hysteroscopy respectively, and 59.5 and 55.6% of these patients had laparoscopic and hysteroscopic findings of early-stage disease respectively. Conclusion: Endoscopic evaluation of unexplained infertility is an indispensable tool for early diagnosis of FGTB and providing antitubercular treatment, while it is in the reversible stage.
