Massive Gastric Dilatation Secondary to Duodenal Tuberculosis: A Case Report

Sajjad Hussain [4]

Abstract: Primary duodenal tuberculosis is an uncommon disease. Massive gastric dilatation secondary to duodenal tuberculosis is even a rarer event. A case is reported of a 40 year old lady who presented with gastric outlet obstruction with massive gastric dilatation. Endoscopy and CT scan abdomen was non-diagnostic. With the impression of duodenal stricture secondary to peptic ulcer cicatrisation and to rule out duodenal malignancy, she was operated in view of complete duodenal obstruction. The diagnosis of duodenal tuberculosis was made post-operatively.
