Disseminated tuberculosis leading to surgical emergency: A case report

Author(s): Dr. Sai Suraj Kotera, Dr. Chaithanya J and Dr. Rajagopalan S
Abstract: Tuberculosis remains one of the most fatal diseases in the world, but treatable on early diagnosis. Disseminated tuberculosis can involve several organs and clinically present with a wide variety of signs and symptoms. Early diagnosis and timely initiation of proper treatment is of great importance in preventing the later complications of the disease. We report a case with disseminated tuberculosis who exhibited a wide spectrum of extra-pulmonary involvement. Simultaneous involvement of pulmonary, skeletal and gastrointestinal system leading to a surgical emergency is uncommon and managed successfully. This paper highlights the diverse clinical presentation of disseminated tuberculosis and the importance of early diagnosis and treatment.
