Genital tuberculosis and reproductive function.

Abstract

Interesting hypotheses about the effects of genital tuberculosis on reproductive function are that diseased men may in rare instances transmit the condition to their female partners and that diseased women are usually sterile unless they conceived and gave birth before the onset of their lesions. These two hypotheses were reviewed with the help of biopsy materials obtained from the Igbos of Nigeria and were considered, as a whole, to be valid in this West African ethnic group.
