Elayyan El-Sarsour


A 65-year-old woman presented with pain in the right hypochondrium and jaundice of 5 days duration. A diagnosis of obstructive jaundice due to GB tumor was made. On exploratory laparotomy, the gall bladder was found to be forming a hard mass adherent to the CBD. A diagnosis of tuberculosis was made postoperatively by histopathological examination. Excision of the mass and a bypass surgery alongside the anti-tuberculos treatment resulted in complete recovery.
