GENITAL TUBERCULOSIS WITH ENDOMETRIOSIS LEADING TO SECONDARY INFERTILITY: A RARE CASE REPORT OF SUCCESSFUL TREATMENT

Bhandari Ruchi, Bhandari Rekha, Saxena Jyotima

Abstract


The incidence of female infertility is rising globally. Genital tuberculosis is a known cause of infertility in women and infertility is the most common initial symptom of genital tuberculosis.Genital tuberculosis not only causes tubal obstruction and dysfunction but also impairs implantation due to endometrial involvement and ovulatory failure from ovarian involvement. Endometriosis is the growth of endometrial tissue outside of the uterus and is commonly associated with an increased risk of infertility. We are presenting a case of secondary infertility due to genital tuberculosis with endometriosis which is treated with antituberculer therapy and intrauterine insemination.
