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. Intestinal tuberculosis. ITB occurs in three forms, namely, ulcerative, hypertrophic, and ulcerohypertrophic, with the ulcerative type being the most common. Ulcerative disease usually shows transverse ulcers, which are often superficial and heal by fibrosis. Hypertrophic form:These thicken the bowel wall creating scarring and fibrosis. It has a rigid appearance and looks like a carcinoma. Ulcerhypertrophic form:This is a combination of ulcerative and hypertrophic forms. Abdominal Tuberculosis Causes. There are two types of conditions causing intestinal tuberculosis; primary and secondary/5(63). 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.
8 Intestinal tuberculosis exists in one of the three main forms i.e. ulcerative, hypertrophic or ulcero-hypertrophic, and fibrous stricture form. 9 The peritoneal involvement exists in four forms. Tuberculosis is primarily a Lung Infection, but it can infect other areas of the body as well. 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. a) Ulcerative form: Several ulcers form the upper tract of the intestines, causing deposition of tubercles. Hence gastro intestinal tuberculosis takes active shape, impacting millions of people across the globe.b) Hypertrophic form: These are thick fiber like structures that can scar your bowels and lead to fibrosis. 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 palpable mass in the ileocecal area. Concepts: Disease or Syndrome (T) MSH.
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). Intestinal Tuberculosis in Surgical Pathology Intestinal obstruction was the most frequent clinical presentation followed by perforation peritonitis in . Each year, tuberculosis (TB) results in the death of 3 million people globally. In , an estimated 1 billion people will be infected, million people will become sick, and 35 million will die from TB, if control is not strengthened. Intestinal Tuberculosis A recent series which highlights the intestinal tubeculosis provides a elaborate view of symptomatology of the colonic tuberculosis (Table 2) Tuberculous Peritonitis In a series of 60 patients published by Chow et al the most common features were ascites (93 percent), abdominal pain (73 percent), and fever (58 File Size: KB.
