Abstract

Tuberculosis involves the duodenum very rarely and is usually secondary to lymph node involvement. Endoscopic biopsy usually shows nonspecific changes necessitating laparotomy for confirmation of diagnosis and relief of obstruction. We report a case of duodenal tuberculosis diagnosed by endoscopic biopsy and treated successfully.
