Abstract
The incidence of abdominal tuberculosis is decreasing due to more effective chemotherapy and pasteurization of milk and tuberculosis may nt be given serious consideration, especially when the primary pulmonary site is healed or not roentgenographically apparent. The clinical features of these infection are relatively nonspecific and the combination of abdominal mass, weight loss, anorexia and fever frequently lead to an erroneous primary diagnosis of neoplasm, especially lymphoma or carcinoma, metastatic to mesenteric lymph node. We have recently experienced a case of abdominal tuberculosis with huge tuberculous mesenteric lymphadenitis simulating neoplasm in 24 month old male. The case was reported with the brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Abdominal tuberculosis, Tuberculous mesenteric lymphadenitis
