Shetty Prathvi, Tauro Leo F and Auti Anand

Abdominal tuberculosis continues to be a major problem in many regions of the world. The lack of specific signs and symptoms of abdominal tuberculosis involving the intestinal tract frequently leads to missed or delayed diagnosis. They are usually present with weight loss, abdominal pain and bowel disturbance or in severe complications like obstruction, perforation, and fistula formation. Though presenting as intussusceptions is uncommon hence we present such a case of Jejunojejunal intussusceptions caused by abdominal tuberculosis in a 16 year old male since it is an extremely rare complication.
