Anti-tubercular treatment, genital TB and infertility - Letter to the Editor

This Letter to the Editor was published recently in the prestigious medical journal, Human Reproduction.

There are a still a lot of myths and misconceptions about genital TB and infertility in India . A large number of infertile women in India are being treated for "silent" or "dormant" or "occult" genital TB, based on a positive TB PCR test ! This kind of overtreatment can cause a lot of harm.
