A rare case of isolated splenic tuberculosis

Author(s): Dr. Mehar Chand, Dr. Kanika Sharma and Dr. Abhey Minhas
Abstract: Splenic tuberculosis (splenic TB) is extremely rare and has no characteristic symptoms or abnormal imaging findings. Therefore, it is likely to be misdiagnosed as carcinoma of spleen, splenic abscess, lymphoma, rheumatic fever or others. Isolated splenic tuberculosis is rare although secondary involvement in miliary TB is common. The misdiagnosis rate is high if there is no tuberculosis history in other organs. In our case report we are discussing about diagnosis, treatment, and literature review on splenic tuberculosis.
