Tuberculosis (TB) is a common infection in the developing countries and involves almost all body organs. Genital TB is usually secondary to pulmonary or extragenital TB and most commonly involves the upper genital tract. Primary tubercular cervicitis is very rare. Here is a unique case report of primary tubercular cervicitis with atypical presentation (endocervical TB and normal appearing ectocervix with normal Papanicolaou test). A lady of reproductive age group presented with primary infertility for 5 years and secondary amenorrhea for 2 years with yellowish discharge per vaginum for 2 years which stopped 5 months back. Hysteroscopic findings revealed endocervical mass which was excised and histopathology of endocervical tissue mass showed tubercular cervicitis. Antitubercular drugs were started for 6 months and she responded well. She conceived with in vitro fertilization technique.
