Ileocecal tuberculosis

Posted by: Philip Alex | Posted on: June 17th, 2012 | 0 Comments

Rama (name changed) had been sick ever since she delivered her child eight months ago. She had been to many doctors in many cities with no respite. Her condition continued to deteriorate. She was admitted in other hospitals and was brought to us two weeks ago with abdominal pain. Investigations revealed a right sided abdominal mass. She was too sick to be operated upon straightaway since her blood pressure was barely recordable. She was built up and then taken up for surgery. A large right sided ileocecal  mass was found with multiple perforations and fecal fistulae. She underwent a right hemicolectomy and proximal and distal ends were brought out as stomas. She withstood the surgery  and is now on the road to recovery. She turned out to have abdominal tuberculosis.
