Abstract

Though intestinal tuberculosis is relatively a common ailment in India and other developing countries; enterolithiasis is a rarely encountered clinical and radiological entity found in this disease. Enteroliths are formed due to stasis caused by stricture formation in intestinal tuberculosis. We report a case of enterolithiasis secondary to intestinal tuberculosis.
