Abstract  
Tuberculosis remains a global health problem and the abdominal pelvic cavity is one of the common sites for extra pulmonary tubercular infections. Unlike pulmonary tuberculosis, genital tuberculosis is difficult to diagnose because there is no pathognomonic clinical feature or imaging findings for definite diagnosis. The authors present a case of genital tuberculosis (tubal and endometrial), which poses some difficulties both in the diagnosis but also in management.
Key words:  Genital tuberculosis      Endometrial tuberculosis      Ultrasound      Management
