Abstract

In spite of decrease in prevalence, yet tuberculosis is not rare disease in Korea and the morbidity is over one percent. Because extrapulmonary tuberculosis is less common than that of lung, quick and accurate diagnosis is not easy and there may be some problems in selecting the methods and the times to treat it. Especially, each or combination of abdominal lymphadenitis and duodenal tuberculosis are so rare that differential diagnosis from other common or rare diseases is difficult, and much attention is required to diagnose and treat those. Recently we experienced a case of tuberculous lymphadenitis accompanied by duodenal bulbar tuberculosis which had been conceived as submucosal tumor at endoscopy and diagnosed by explorative operation. So we report this case with review of related literatures.
