A series of 200 consecutive hysterosalpingograms for the evaluation of infertility in Black women attending a clinic at the Hillbrow Hospital, Johannesburg, is reviewed. A fallopian tube abnormality was found in 81.8% of cases, terminal hydrosalpinx being present in 64.4%. A uterine abnormality was present in 25% of cases. In comparison with other series it appears that our incidence of tubal lesions, especially terminal hydrosalpinx, is the highest yet reported. A high correlation with laparoscopic findings (75%) is documented. In our infertility clinic hysterosalpingography is one of the most valuable tools in the initial evaluation of the infertile couple.
