Abstract

Mycobacterium tuberculosis spread from the external genitalia into the pelvic cavity mainly via hematogenous spread. Pelvic tuberculosis can be asymptomatic or remained unrecognized or mimics other gynaecological pathology. We illustrate a case of pelvic tuberculosis which was diagnosed retrospectively, whereby ovarian carcinoma was the initial diagnosis.
