Fifty-two cases of abdominal tuberculosis were studied. Diagnosis was confirmed surgically in 44. In 30 of these, clinical diagnosis was other than tuberculosis on clinical evidence. Clinical features, type and extent of lesions seen and management, both medical and surgical, have been discussed. The indications of surgery have been enumerated and the value of conservative surgery in abdominal tuberculosis, especially in an emergency has been stressed.
