The apparent affinity of the tubercle bacillus for lymphoid tissue and areas of physiologic stasis facilitating prolonged contact between the bacilli and the mucosa may be the reasons for the ileum and cecum being the most common sites of disease. Other areas of the colon besides the ileocaecal area represent the next more common site of tuberculous involvement of the GI tract, usually manifested as segmental colitis involving the ascending and transverse colon.
