Resumen

REYES PEREZ, Abraham; GONZALEZ DELIS, Remberto  y  CRUZ RODRIGUEZ, Javier. Abdomen agudo por peritonitis tuberculosa. Presentación de un caso. Medisur [online]. 2016, vol.14, n.4, pp.482-486. ISSN 1727-897X.

Extrapulmonary tuberculosis is a bacterial infection that occurs outside the lung parenchyma. It is caused by different types of mycobacteria; the most common causative agent in humans is Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The case of a 17-year-old Angolan patient treated in a municipal hospital in Angola due to severe abdominal pain with generalized peritoneal reaction is presented. Several tests were performed, but they did not clarify the patient’s condition. Finally, she underwent surgery and an omental biopsy was taken. The histological study revealed the presence of tuberculoid granulomas, which led to the diagnosis of miliary tuberculosis. Cases of acute abdomen due to tuberculous peritonitis are very uncommon, in fact, this is the first case seen by the author of this report in forty years practicing as a surgeon.

Palabras clave : abdomen, agudo; peritonitis, tuberculous; tuberculosis miliary; case reports.
