Inflammatory bowel disease can progress to colon cancer. However, there is not much of a causal relationship between intestinal tuberculosis and colon cancer. There have been a few case reports of intestinal tuberculosis in association with colon cancer. We experienced a 59-year-old man who had the collision-like pathology of adenocarcinoma and tuberculous lymphadenitis on the sigmoid colon. He visitied our hospital because of abdominal pain and hematochezia. Colonoscopy showed a mass on the sigmoid colon that was causing luminal obstruction. Therefore, sigmoidectomy was performed and the resected specimen revealed a collision-like appearance; the mass was composed of adenocarcinoma invading the proper muscle layer and caseating granuloma in the serosa and lymph nodes. We report here on a case of collision-like pathology that was composed of adenocarcinoma and tuberculosis on the sigmoid colon, and we review the relevant literature.
