Despite considerable progress made in the therapy and prophylaxis during the last quarter of the century, tuberculosis of various sites continues to be a major health hazard in India The precise prevalence of abdominal tuberculosis has not been determined due to lack of a survey in random samples of the population. In our country, intestinal tuberculosis is a relatively common condition. It is one of the single largest causes of intestinal obstruction. This paper relates to our experience with 98 cases of surgically proven tubercular abdomen treated during the years 1976 to 1978 at the Sarojini Naidu Medical College Hospital, Agra, Uttar Pradesh.
