Post Operative Tuberculous wound infection: A report of 6 cases
Post-operative wound infection by tuberculosis may cause delayed wound healing. Such wound infection by tuberculosis was found in 6 cases in the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department of Dhaka National Medical College & Hospital from July 2000 to December 2009. All patients had no complaints except for delayed wound healing. None had history of exposure or relevant past history of tuberculosis. Tuberculous infection was diagnosed by histopathological examination of the tissue from the wound. All of the patients were treated with standard anti-tubercular drugs for 6 months and they responded well.
