The cecum area showing ulceration of the ileocecal valve

Colonic TB may present as an inflammatory stricture, hypertrophic lesions resembling polyps or tumors, segmental ulcers and colitis or rarely, diffuse uberculous
colitis. The diagnosis can be quite difficult since there are no specific clinical symptoms of large bowel TB and only a quarter of patients have chest radiographs showing
evidence of active or healed pulmonary infection. The
clinical, radiological and endoscopic picture is most likely to be confused with neoplasms or Crohn's disease, and infrequently with other considerations including amoeboma, Yersinia infection, GI histoplasmosis, and periappendiceal abscess.
