#ItsTime A 37 y/o/m patient was admitted with a history of perianal discharge and ulceration for the last 4 months. According to his medical history, he was treated for a perianal abscess which was incised and drained 1 year ago, yet, despite the initial healing, it recurred 2 months later. No lymphadenopathy was found on palpation; in addition abdominal examination revealed a generalized tenderness. The perianal region examination showed large bilateral infected ulcerations followed by pus. The digital rectal one revealed no pathological findings except a slight sphincter hypotonia. Anoscopy was normal and no fistulas were noted. The rectosigmoidoscopy showed no abnormalities as well. Please help if its a case of TB?


TB Ad dm htn The anal ulceration associated with nicorandil usually presents clinically with anal pain. Mucus discharge and rectal bleeding are less common. Anal ulceration usually occurs spontaneously but sometimes develops after anal trauma. ... After withdrawal of nicorandil, ulcer healing may take place in as little as two weeks.

Its is case of perianal tuberculosis. I had few cases before. Work out and start with ATT.

Fistula with abcess...need further evauation

* Tuberculosis Needs further investigation and evaluation tissue biopsy and culture with sensitivity. Debridement under LA or GA ASD with betadine lotion. ATT and regular evaluation and constant monitoring will give good results. Improve general health and personal hygiene. Good nutritious balanced diet. Multivitamin and antioxidants orally.

Thanks Dr Pushkar Bhomia
