Postmenopausal endometrial tuberculosis is an uncommon condition. Two patients with this disease, 1 of whom also presented with a pyometra, are described. They were the only 2 patients with this disease out of 21742 patients admitted to the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Tygerberg Hospital. Both were treated with standard antituberculosis drugs for 9 months. No further episodes of postmenopausal bleeding occurred during or directly after treatment, and a follow-up hysteroscopic examination showed a completely atrophic endometrial lining.
