The prevalence of intestinal tuberculosis has been markedly decreased with the development of antituberculoug chemotherapy, improved economic conditions, preventive medicine and early detection and treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis. An even more impressive resurgence of pulmonary and extrapulmonary tuber culosis has been seen in recent years among persons infected with the human immunodeficiency virus. The most common signs of infeshna1 tuberculosis is the ileocecal region, and duodenum is a rare site. Symptoms and signs of duodenal tuberculosis are nonspecific. The gross pathologic appearance of the duodeznal tuberculous lesions has to its traditional categoriration into three farms. 1) ulcerative, 2) hypertrophic, and 3) ulcerohypertrophic (mixed). Hypertrophic lesions of the duodenal tuberculosis should be differentiated from duodenal adenocarcinoma and lymphoma. We herein report a case of duodenal tuberculosis presenting as intraluminal protruding mass in gastroduodenoscopy and multiple intraabdomina1 lymphadenopathy on abdominal CT. We have confirmed the duodena1 tuberculosis by endoscopic biopsy, and review the current literatures. (Korean J Gastroluetest Endosc 2001;23:30-40)
