Abstract

We experienced a rare case of abdominal tuberculous lymphadenitis limited in the hepatoduodenal ligament. Abdominal US examination showed low-echoic lymphnodes. With CT and MRI enlarged lymph nodes showed peripheral rim enhancement and non-enhanced center, which is characteristic but not pathognomonic finding in tuberculous lymphadenitis. As the lesions were difficult to distinguish from metastatic malignancy and malignant lymphoma, laparoscopic-guided biopsy was performed. When enlarged abdominal lymphnodes are observed, especially with thick and irregular peripheral rim enhancement, we should consider tuberculous lymphadenitis as a possible differential diagnosis.
