Resumen

VILLALON C, RICARDO et al. Intestinal tuberculosis causing a severe gastrointestinal bleeding. Report of one case. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2010, vol.62, n.6, pp.631-634. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262010000600016.

We report a 27 years old woman presenting with hematochezia. An upper endoscopy and colonoscopy did not reveal the bleeding site. Due to persistence of bleeding, the patient was operated, finding a fibrinous secretion surrounding bowel loops and a hyper vascularized concentric papular lesion. The involved bowel loop was excised. The pathological study of the surgical piece revealed intestinal tuberculosis. The patient started treatment for extra pulmonary tuberculosis.

Palabras clave : Intestinal tuberculosis; bleeding; hematochezia.
