Genitourinary tuberculosis is a common extrapulmonary manifestation of tuberculosis.

Figure 1: Represents the uterus and mass on the posterior with a hypoechoic pattern in the mass.

Mentions: Abdominal and vaginal ultrasonographyshowed the right ovary and uterus to have anormal size and shape. However, there was aheterogenic solid mass (110 cm ×64 cm ×8.7cm) lying posteriorly between the uterus andleft ovary (Fig 1). The ultrasonographic imagewith standard view was impossible due to frozenpelvic. The vascular pattern of the mass wasdominant, only having a simple cyst 2 cm ×3cm in dimension. The hypoechoic pattern in themass was suspicious for degenerated leiomyoma.There was no free fluid found in the abdominopelviccavity. Because of abdominal pain, anexploratory laparotomy was performed.
