Abstract

Extrapulmonary tuberculosis usually involves the pleura, central nervous system, lymphatic system, genitourinary system and bone with joint. There are few reports about pulmonary tuberculosis involving the endometrium and muscle. A 32-year-old woman who had intact immunity visited hospital due to menorrhagia, and was diagnosed with endometrial tuberculosis. The patient also had a painless abdominal mass about for 1 year before she came to the hospital. She was diagnosed with rectus abdominis muscle tuberculosis, endometrial tuberculosis, and pulmonary tuberculosis at the same time. We report a case of endometrial tuberculosis accompanied with rectus abdominis muscle and pulmonary tuberculosis in a non-immunosuppressed person.
