Abstract
The incidence of abdominal tuberculosis represents less than 1% of all forms of tuberculosis. We report the case of a portal vein thrombosis associated with tuberculous adenopathy of the hepatic hilum discovered in a young woman free of symptoms, without any risk factors, who had recovered from a cavity pulmonary tuberculosis after a classical anti-tuberculous treatment. This case suggests that abdominal tuberculosis often remains undiagnosed. Reemergence of tuberculosis is likely because of the increase in the incidence of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.
