Liver tuberculosis

Tuberculosis of the liver is rare. Due to the lack of specific symptoms and signs, the rate of clinical misdiagnosis and mistreatment is high. Most liver tuberculosis is a part of systemic miliary tuberculosis, which is called secondary liver tuberculosis. Patients mainly show the clinical manifestations caused by extrahepatic pulmonary and intestinal tuberculosis. Generally, there are no clinical symptoms of liver disease. Intrahepatic tuberculosis can be cured after anti tuberculosis treatment. It is difficult to make a clinical diagnosis of liver tuberculosis. Primary hepatic tuberculosis refers to the involvement of the liver in the liver and becomes the cause of all its clinical manifestations. When the liver tuberculosis occurs, the foci of other parts of the liver have been recovered or hidden, but the liver is the only organ to detect tuberculosis. At this time, the patient has systemic manifestations of tuberculosis and / or local manifestations of liver disease, such as fever, chills, night sweats, fatigue, wasting, nausea, vomiting, abdominal distension, diarrhea, liver pain and tenderness, hepatomegaly and jaundice.
