Pancreatic and peripancreatic tuberculosis mimicking malignancy


Pancreatic and peripancreatic tuberculosis mimicking malignancy



Jop: Journal of the Pancreas 8(2): 201-205



ISSN/ISBN: 1590-8577

PMID: 17356244

There are a variety of differential diagnoses for an abnormal mass arising from the pancreas of which isolated pancreatic or peripancreatic tuberculosis is an extremely rare diagnosis with a variety of elusive presentations. We report such a case which masqueraded as malignancy in 43-year-old man presenting with jaundice, weight loss and new onset diabetes. Tuberculosis should be considered as a differential diagnosis to an obscure pancreatic mass which may result in local complications amenable to surgery.
