Tuberculosis of the Gastrointestinal system (Original PDF from Publisher)
By Vishal Sharma
Tuberculosis is an important concern in numerous countries across the globe. Training is usually focused on pulmonary tuberculosis, and the nuances of diagnosis and management of extrapulmonary tuberculosis, including abdominal tuberculosis, are not usually emphasized. This book details the varied presentations and mimics of tubercular involvement of the abdomen and the gastrointestinal system . .
The book provides clear guidance to the clinicians to diagnosis and manage the varied forms of abdominal tuberculosis. The chapters also touch on areas of controversy and confusion. Chapters are focused on each of the sites (intestinal, peritoneal, gastroduodenal, hepatobiliary, and pancreatic), modalities for evaluation (histology, microbiology, radiology, endoscopic ultrasound, nuclear medicine), differential diagnosis, and follow-up including response to treatment. Separate chapters have also been devoted to pediatric abdominal TB, therapy-related hepatitis, and considerations in immunocompromised states such as HIV.
Therefore, this book will help practice clinicians and serve as a one-stop resource for graduate students in internal medicine and fellows training in gastroenterology.
