At Sarvodaya Hospital, the pulmonology department specializes in identifying, evaluating, preventing, treating, and overseeing conditions that impact the respiratory system. Any of the following areas, including the peritoneum, stomach, intestines, hepatobiliary tree, pancreas, perianal area, and lymph nodes, can be affected by abdominal TB.
The involvement of the peritoneum, colon, and/or lymph nodes is one of the disease's most prevalent manifestations. Ingestion of tuberculous mycobacteria or the reactivation of a latent TB infection is two possible causes of TB of the abdomen (as with ingestion of unpasteurized milk or undercooked meat). Abdominal involvement may arise in the presence of active pulmonary or miliary TB by hematogenous spread, the contiguous spread of TB from nearby organs (such as retrograde dissemination from the fallopian tubes), or lymphatic channel spread.
