Abstract

Tuberculosis involving the anorectal region is a rare extrapulmonary form of the disease. We report two cases of isolated rectal tuberculosis with different presentations. On both instances, diagnosis was confirmed by histological examination and treated with anti-tuberculous drugs with successful outcome.

Keywords: Tuberculosis, abdominal tuberculosis, extrapulmonary, gastrointestinal, rectal.
