Hello

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question


Abdominal TB is a type of extra-pulmonary TB which can be found in the large intestine, small intestine, appendix, stomach, esophagus, and rectum. Abdominal TB arises from reactivation of the primary focus of most germs in the lungs. Germs spread through blood circulation or lymph node vessels. The location most often the focus of infection is ileocecal (end of small intestine to beginning of large intestine).


Symptoms that can occur include abdominal pain, weight loss, decreased appetite, fever, constipation, diarrhea, or bloody bowel movements. Investigations to help diagnose abdominal TB are USG, colonoscopy, CT scan. On colonoscopy examination abnormalities due to abdominal TB often resemble Chrons disease (chronic inflammatory bowel disease). Therefore, in the suspicion of Chrons' disease, further investigation is needed to confirm the diagnosis, one of which is by CT scan and tissue biopsy.


Consult your condition again with the doctor. If the complaint does not improve there may be caused by abdominal TB, but still needed an examination to confirm because TB treatment is specific and requires a long period of time.


That's all, hope you can help
