The diagnosis of colonic tuberculosis requires a high index
of suspicion.

Nodular ulcers with thickened mucosa covered with
fibrin.
We could not get to the cecum, due to a lesion with
severe narrowness in the ascending colon.

Clinical features of intestinal TB include abdominal pain,
weight loss, anemia, and fever with night sweats. Patients
may present with symptoms of obstruction, right iliac fossa
pain, or a palpable mass in the right iliac fossa.
Hemorrhage and perforation are recognized complications
of intestinal TB, although free perforation is less frequent
than in Crohn disease.
