International Journal of Medical and Pharmaceutical Case Reports,
Aim: We aimed to present a rare case of pseudotumoral tuberculosis of the cervix.
Introduction: Tuberculosis has many localizations. Urogenital and particularly cervical involvement is rare.
Case Presentation: Our observation concerned a case of pseudotumoral tuberculosis of the uterine cervix simulating a cancer. The clinical signs were pelvic pain and metrorrhagia, which were non-specific. The ulcerative-bourgeons appearance of the cervix was suggestive of cancer. Histology allowed the diagnosis to be made by showing an inflammatory granuloma and the absence of malignant cells. Despite the absence of bacteriological evidence, the clinical, biological, and histological presumptive arguments and the good therapeutic response made it possible to correct the diagnosis. The prognosis of our patient was mainly functional due to the risk of infertility.
Conclusion: The interest of this observation lay in the rarity of this tuberculosis localization, especially in an immunocompetent subject, and the predominant place of histology.
