Transient Intussusception Induced by Intestinal Tuberculosis in Adult
Intussusception in adults is a rare disease entity; its clinical course and etiology are different from its pediatric counterpart. Furthermore, intussusception caused by intestinal tuberculosis is very rare. We report on a case of transient intussusception induced by intestinal tuberculosis. A 29-year-old female visited our hospital with a chief complaint of right lower quadrant abdominal pain. Abdominal computed tomography showed ileo-colic type intussusception. Intussusception was transient and showed spontaneous reduction. Colonoscopy was performed for evaluation of the cause and intestinal tuberculosis was probable on colonoscopic biopsy. Follow up colonoscopy showed improvement after administration of anti-tuberculosis medication and intestinal tuberculosis was then confirmed.
