    Gastrointestinal tuberculosis refers to the infection of abdominal organs with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It generally affects the following organs: A point worthy of mention is that tuberculosis can affect virtually any organ system directly (primary pulmonary tuberculosis) or indirectly (via spread from primary). Abdominal Tuberculosis Treatment. It is usually difficult to differentiate between intestinal tuberculosis and Crohn’s disease. Abdominal tuberculosis will require confirmation before treatment. ATT (Anti-Tuberculosis treatment) for 6 – 9 months is necessary for cure. At time surgery is required to relieve bowel obstruction/5(63).

    Although Savicheva was rescued and transferred to a hospital, she succumbed to intestinal tuberculosis in July at age Savicheva's image and the pages from her diary became symbolic of the human cost of the Siege of Leningrad and she is remembered in St. Petersburg with a memorial complex on the Green Belt of Glory along the Road of of death: Intestinal tuberculosis. Urinary tract tuberculosis (UTTB) is an insidious disease with non-specific constitutional symptoms that are often unrecognized and lead to delayed diagnosis. Advanced UTTB may cause loss of kidney function. In the majority of literature, UTTB is reviewed together with genital tuberculosis because often both sites are involved simultaneously; “Genitourinary tuberculosis Author: Gerardo Amaya-Tapia and Guadalupe Aguirre-Avalos.

      Intestinal Tuberculosis frequently complicates Lung Infections with Tuberculosis. In addition, milk, which contains tuberculi bacteria, may also infect the intestine. Intestinal tuberculosis occurs mainly in developing countries. This infection may not cause any symptoms but can cause abnormal swelling of tissues in the abdomen.

Intestinal tuberculosis, caused by M. tuberculosis and Mycobacterium bovis, is an uncommon disease in cattle, nursing calves, nonhuman primates, and human gh historically associated with drinking unpasteurized milk, more recently, intestinal tuberculosis.

Intestinal tuberculosis may cause mucosal ulcerations or scarring and fibrosis with narrowing of the lumen. Patients may be without symptoms or complain of chronic abdominal pain, obstructive symptoms, weight loss, and diarrhea.

An abdominal mass may be palpable. Complications include intestinal obstruction, hemorrhage, and fistula formation. Renal tuberculosis and progression to disease from latent M tuberculosis infection (“adult-type pulmonary tuberculosis”) are unusual in younger children but can occur in adolescents.

In addition, chronic abdominal pain with peritonitis and intermittent partial intestinal obstruction can be present in disease caused by M bovis. Intestinal tuberculosis is a common clinical problem in India. The clinical features of this disease are nonspecific and can be very similar to Crohn's disease.

What is secondary intestinal tuberculosis This is a type of tuberculosis which occurs in a patient of active pulmonary tuberculosis who swallows the coughed up sputum and the lesions are developed in the intestine secondary to the swallowed material.

Gastrointestinal tuberculosis (TB) is a fascinating disease which can be observed both in the clinical context of active pulmonary disease and as a primary infection with no pulmonary involvement.

It represents a significant clinical challenge because of the resurgence of TB as well as the diagnostic challenges it poses. A high clinical suspicion remains the most powerful tool.

tuberculosis (TB), contagious, wasting disease caused by any of several mycobacteria. The most common form of the disease is tuberculosis of the lungs (pulmonary consumption, or phthisis), but the intestines, bones and joints, the skin, and the genitourinary, lymphatic, and nervous systems may also be affected.

Abdominal tuberculosis, which is a form of extrapulmonary tuberculosis, affects the gastrointestinal tract, spleen, pancreas, liver, peritoneum, omentum and lymph nodes adjacent to these organs. Tuberculosis accounts for 5%-9% of all small intestinal perforations in India, and is the second commonest cause after typhoid fever.

Morphologically, the lesions in intestinal tuberculosis are classified into ulcerative and ulcero-hypertrophic by:   Intestinal tuberculosis is caused by mycobacterium tuberculosis, as in any other organ involvement, tuberculosis symptoms remain same except intestinal involvement may produce chronic pain in the abdomen, diarrhea, or constipation and occasionally vomiting.

Fever, Night sweats, Rapid loss of weight, generalized weakness is common features of. Intestinal manifestation of tuberculosis, infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium species mainly Mycobacterium of the cases represents secondary spread of pulmonary tuberculosis via swallowing of infected sputum, hematogenous, spread or direct extension from adjacent structures.

TUBERCULOSIS that involves any region of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT, mostly in the distal ILEUM and the CECUM.

In most cases, MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS is the pathogen. Clinical features include ABDOMINAL PAIN; FEVER; and. Intestinal tuberculosis is a chronic inflammation of the bowel caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The ileocecal area is the most common site.

In patients with intestinal tuberculosis sonography may detect bowel wall thickening and hyperemia, usually associated with luminal narrowing and mesenteric lymphadenopathy. “The disease is still around, it's still contagious, and despite the fact that the vaccine costs approximately sixteen cents to produce, and $ to buy, tuberculosis continues to ravage periphery countries.

Millions of people die from tuberculosis every year - and it's totally treatable. This is a disease we can eradicate in our lifetime.”.

Abdominal tuberculosis as a primary disease is not often met with during the first two years of life. Tabes mesenterica is not a common disease of infancy. "Consumption of the bowels," which is such a popular diagnosis, is most frequently a misnomer for chronic intestinal indigestion and diarrhoea the results of improper food and overfeeding.

Differentiating intestinal tuberculosis from Crohn’s disease (CD) is an important clinical challenge of considerable therapeutic significance. The problem is of greatest magnitude in countries where tuberculosis continues to be highly prevalent, and where the incidence of CD is increasing.
