title:Isolated Mesenteric Tuberculosis Presented as Abdominal Mass

Author:Patel Anand, Choudhury Sushmita

Keywords:Tuberculosis, mesenteric, abdominal mass

Type:Case report

Abstract:Tuberculosis may involve any organ in the body but isolated mesenteric tuberculosis with formation of mass is, indeed, rarely mentioned in the differential diagnosis of an abdominal mass. We are presenting a case of isolated mesenteric tuberculosis confirmed by histological examination of wide excision biopsy without any evidence of pulmonary, skeletal or gastrointestinal tuberculosis in an immune-competent patient. The rarity of this condition prompted its reporting.
