A Case Report: Duodenal Tuberculosis Presenting as Gastric Outlet Obstruction
Abstract: Duodenal tuberculosis is a rare clinical entity and accounts for 2.3 %  of abdominal tuberculosis. It usually occurs secondary to pulmonary tuberculosis. Existing guidelines suggest surgery as the main stay for both obtaining a definitive diagnosis as well as for therapy. CASE REPORT A 46 year-old patient was admitted to the emergency surgery department with severe abdominal pain, vomiting since 15 days duration CONCLUSION Duodenal tuberculosis, the rarest form of intestinal tuberculosis, poses great difficulty in diagnosis. Radiologic findings and endoscopic biopsy are nonspecific and surgical intervention is often required to make a diagnosis. Treatment is based on antitubercular therapy, surgery is indicated in case of complication.
