Disseminated Tuberculosis

Disseminated Tuberculosis (TB) is a potentially lethal disease if not diagnosed and treated early. It still remains if the presentation is non-specific, unusual and the relevant facts are overlooked. However, a high index of clinical suspicion and early diagnosis and timely institution of anti-tuberculosis treatment is life-saving. Here we did a case study of disseminated tuberculosis with unusual presentation. Miliary TB is often a perplexing disease with diagnosis eluding experienced clinicians, due to a myriad of clinical presentations and atypical radiologic findings. Disseminated TB has recently been increasingly recognized in adults. This is due to prevalence of immune suppression of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), immunosuppressive therapies for various medical disorders including transplants, and chronic haemodialysis programmes. Amongst immunocompetent adults, miliary TB accounts for less than 2 percent of all TB cases and up to 20 percent of all extra-pulmonary TB cases.( Disseminated Tuberculosis - A Case Study-Aye M)
