Aim: To explore the possibility of risk factor between latent genital tuberculosis with association of low secretion anti-mullerian hormone(AMH) and low level of Vitamin D for infertility. Design: Retrospective study was done in the reproductive medicine unit of Calcutta Fertility Mission, Kolkata-700019, and India Result: From January 2017 to January 2019, total 150 Subjects (n= 75 TB-PCR positive and n=75 TB-PCR negative cases as control) were included in this study on the basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria. We have found that mean value of AMH and Vitamin D were higher in PCR negative group than positive group. Various level of AMH and Vitamin D concentration for PCR positive and negative cases were statistically significant (p-value < 0.01). Conclusion: Our finding is that vitamin D deficiency is highly prevalent not only in active tuberculosis but also in latent genital tuberculosis subjects and serum Vitamin D level may help in treatment of latent genital tuberculosis. Elevated level of Vitamin D in serum may rule out latent tuberculosis.
