A 65-year-old multiparous female was evaluated for postmenopausal bleeding. Imaging was strongly suggestive of malignancy. However, hysteroscopic-guided endometrial biopsy revealed tuberculous endometritis. The patient responded to antitubercular therapy and recovered completely. Genital tuberculosis is typically considered a disease of young women presenting with infertility. However, tuberculous endometritis should be considered in a patient of postmenopausal bleeding, particularly in developing countries. It is a rare, but curable cause of postmenopausal bleeding.
