Abstract

We have read the interesting paper recently published by Ali et al., March, 8 volume, 1 issue, detailing a case of pancreatic mass in a 40-year-old male presenting with important weight loss, abdominal pain, and fever for 2 weeks. He denied any other complaint, history of tuberculosis, or drugs assumption. Recently, we have observed a comparable case of pancreatic tuberculosis which in our opinion deserves a short mention, given the rarity of such presentation and the entailed diagnostic clinical and pathologic challenges, especially when dealing with patients coming from endemic areas for tuberculosis
