Abstract

Venous thromboembolism in tuberculosis is not a well recognised entity. It is a less frequently reported complication of severe pulmonary tuberculosis. It is exceedingly rare when it complicates extrapulmonary tuberculosis. Here, we present a case of 22-year-old young female with abdominal tuberculosis complicated with reverse ileocecal intussusception, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. An emergency vena cava filter was inserted prior to a limited right hemicolectomy. In this article, we discuss the rare association of venous thromboembolism with ileocecal tuberculosis.
