Isolated tuberculosis of appendix



Isolated tuberculosis of appendix



American Surgeon 41(3): 172-174



Two patients with acute appendicitis are discussed. On histologic examination both were found to have tuberculosis associated with pyogenic infection. Subsequent investigations failed to reveal tuberculous lesions elsewhere in the body. Both patients have responded well to appendectomy and antituberculous drug therapy.
