A 40-year-old woman presented with acute obstructive lung disease. She was treated with steroids and achieved a good response. However, she had two previous pelvic operations with histological findings of uterine serosal caseating granulomas presenting in the latter operation. Antituberculosis (TB) prophylaxis was suggested due to the suspicion of TB reactivation under steroid management. Investigation for TB infection or exposure was negative while revision of the histological slides disclosed talc granulomas. Although talc granuloma is reported in starch powder gloves which should not contain talc, it is still very uncommon.
