Simultaneous intestinal tuberculosis and adenocarcinoma
Intestinal tuberculosis is a rare diagnosis, which may often be mistaken for mb. Crohn or cancer. We present a case of a 57-year-old man, who was diagnosed with intestinal tuberculosis. Due to increased abdominal pain, a computed tomography was performed, revealing a growing sigmoidal tumour, and the biopsies taken showed an adenocarcinoma. Further histological tests revealed no spread of cancer, and the patient could receive curative surgery. While intestinal tuberculosis can appear similar to colon cancer, it may also as in this case be an intercurrent disease.
