What are the characteristics of people recovering from intestinal tuberculosis?

1 Answer:

Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Establishing a diagnosis of gastrointestinal tuberculosis or intestinal TB is quite difficult to do because the isolation of germs that causes TB must go through tissue or histopathological examination. Another case with pulmonary TB where germs can be found enough from sputum examination. Therefore, intestinal TB also does not set a standard examination that must be done as in the case of pulmonary TB. Therefore evaluation of the treatment response after routine TB drug administration for at least 6 months is also not quite easy. The first thing that can be seen from patients is responding well with TB drugs that have been given where the initial symptoms are felt to be much reduced even have disappeared. The initial symptoms referred to include:
1) constitutional symptoms such as fever, no appetite and decreased
weight.
2) Symptoms due to mucosal ulceration such as diarrhea, blood chapter and impaired absorption.
3) Symptoms related to transmural involvement such as abdominal pain, tension and vomiting, palpable lumps.
4) Extraintestinal manifestations such as joint pain and lymph node enlargement.
In addition, supporting examination that can be done is to assess the repair of intestinal tissue is by endoscopic examination of the gastrointestinal tract and biopsy. In cases that respond well to TB treatment, typical signs of inflammation by TB germs in the intestinal tissue are no longer found, or in other words TB infection has been treated. Other tests that can be done for example are abdominal ultrasound, CT scan, barium enema, and so forth.
That's all, hope you can help
Wassalam.
