Savita Rani Singhal*, Pooja Chaudhry and Smiti Nanda

Tuberculosis of the cervix is a rare form of genital tuberculosis. The symptmatology does not have any particular specific features; but the macroscopic appearance may be of cancer at first impression. A biopsy followed by histology differentiates between the two. A 19 year old married female being investigated for primary amenorrhea with history of contact bleeding had an exophytic growth on cervix, which turned out to be cervical tuberculosis. In a young patient with suspicious cervical lesion and history of contact bleeding a benign pathology like cervical tuberculosis should be kept in mind The incidence of cervical involvement in genital tuberculosis is extremely low. The outlook is good with full recovery if the treatment is carried out properly and promptly.
