Asherman syndrome is a rare condition that presents as the formation of scar tissue in the uterine cavity. The problem most often develops after uterine surgery, especially in women who have had several dilation and curettage (D&C) procedure. Other cause of AS include a severe pelvic infection unrelated to surgery, infection with tuberculosis or schistosomiasis. Uterine complications related to these infections are even less common.
