Abstract

Tuberculosis of the rectum is rarely reported, even from areas where tuberculosis, and gastrointestinal tuberculosis in particular, is prevalent. The authors report a case of long tubercular stricture of the rectum and distal part of the sigmoid colon in a 12-year-old girl. Because of nonspecific symptoms and noncharacteristic radiological and endoscopic features, the diagnosis of this rare entity rests mainly on histological evidence of the classical tubercle in a surgical biopsy specimen.
