Abstract

20 cases of intestinal tuberculosis diagnosed on clinical and radiological grounds have been studied and investigated for per oral jejunal mucosal biopsy, faecal fat excretion and serum iron and total iron binding capacity. Their commonest symptoms were weakness, weight loss and flatulent dyspepsia. While abdominal tenderness was present in 100%, ascites and abdominal masses were present only in a quarter of the cases. Only three cases had associated pulmonary tuberculosis. Multiple fluid levels were confined to only two cases while in majority (50 %) findings were limited to the terminal ileum and caecum. Only quarter of the cases showed diffuse bowel involvement with strictures.
