An analysis of 500 biopsy proved cases of endometrial tuberculosis has been presented. Each case was studied in detail for its clinical signs and symptoms. A correlation in between the histopathological changes and presenting symptoms have been discussed. No characterstic endometrial pattern was found to be specific for a tuberculous lesion. A deviation from normal pattern such as proliferative, mixed and hyperplastic endometrium was noted in number of cases. The tuberculous lesion was found to be diffuse with caseation in amenorrhoea cases while a focal non-caseating was a feature with normal cycles. Other features like glandular changes, epithelial changes and inflammatory cells have also been discussed.
