Data for: Intestinal Tuberculosis Patients Manifested as Caecal and Adnexal Tumor: Case Serial of Three Patients
Intestinal TB is an extrapulmonary TB, which the most common affected location is the ileocaecal, accounts for 64% of the incidence of gastrointestinal TB. Ileocaecal have a variety of contributing factors including static condition, the amount of lymphoid tissue at this location, the most absorptive area and closer contact of the bacilli with the mucosa. Clinical symptoms found in ITB patients are almost the same as symptoms often found in pulmonary TB such as fever, weight loss, anorexia, and night sweats. Endoscopic findings and radiological or bacteriological signs and histopathological findings are the gold standard for ITB diagnosis.
