Peripancreatic lymph node is a rare site for extrapulmonary tuberculosis involvementThe presentation is usually indolent with weight loss, abdominal pain, fever or obstructive jaundice.2-4 Besides, the enlarged lymph node resembles pancreatic parenchyma on ultrasound or computed tomography (CT) due to similar tissue density.5-7 Therefore, it is often misdiagnosed as pancreatic malignancy.8,9 Imaging modality with higher accuracy and tissue proof are mandatory for diagnosis and further management.10,11.
