In 225 cases of primary and secondary infertility and menstrual irregularity, endometrium and fallopian tube biopsies were subjected to bacteriological and histopathological examination. Evidence of tuberculosis was seen in 12 cases of primary and 4 of secondary infertility. Histological examination was positive in 10, bacteriological in 4 and both were positive in 2 cases. Five of the strains were sensitive to all the drugs employed and one was resistant to streptomycin. Bacteriological examination along with the other parameters is mandatory in genital tuberculosis for definite diagnosis and for determination of drug sensitivity and for prescribing the proper drug regimen.
