Genital tuberculosis is an important cause of infertility in developing countries and hysterosalpingography (HSG) is the initial procedure performed for the evaluation. Reviewing 37 cases of female genital tuberculosis, we encountered various appearances on HSG. Of 579 HSGs performed over a period of 4 years, 492 (85%) were performed as part of infertility work up. Genital tuberculosis was found in 6.3% of all the patients who underwent HSGs and 7.5% of all patients investigated for infertility. The various features of proven tuberculosis cases are illustrated in this pictorial review. We briefly discuss the pathology and these appearances along with radiopathological correlation.
