A 14 year old Turkish girl presented with unspecific abdominal symptoms and barium enema showed an almost complete obstruction in the region of the splenic flexure. The picture was that of a neoplasm and a left hemicolectomy was performed. Histological examination revealed ulcerating hypertrophic tuberculosis of the colon. The incidence, pathology and symptomatology of colonic tuberculosis are discussed.
