Abstract
Female pelvic tuberculosis is almost invariably secondary to disease elsewhere, usually in the lungs. It is difficult to diagnose pelvic tuberculosis, because it is often a disease with absent or few non-specific symptoms. Pelvic tuberculosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of all ovarian mass and pelvic malignancy. We report a case of retroperitoneal tuberculous lymphadenopathy that may be mistaken for pelvic malignancy, because of the nonspecific clinical features and radiologic findings. The diagnosis was made post-operatively by histopathology.
Key Words: Tuberculosis, Lymphadenopathy, Retroperitoneal space
