40kg emaciated 35 y.o. woman with known tb of her lungs and abdomen (did a combined thoracotomy/abd lap on her a few weeks using DLETTs provided by members of this forum :-)

The granuloma looking things on her bowel are TB lesions. She had thousands of them in her abdomen. One (or more) perfed the bowel.



Here's a larger tuberculoma



Rarely do we see TB in the lungs... Most often it presents in some other bizarre way.

Last year we had a man paralyzed from about T10 from lesions. After a course of TB meds the lesions shrank and he ended up walking out of the hospital.

Anyways, just thought it was interesting.
