Abstract

Abdominal tuberculosis (TB) is an uncommon affliction in adolescence. It is usually associated with pulmonary tuberculosis. The disease is caused by lymphohaematogenous spread after primary infection in the lung or ingestion of infected sputum and has a typically nonspecific presentation. The occurrence of ileocaecal TB is probably from the contiguous spread of an abdominal focus or mesenteric lymph node. Ileocaecal TB is a rare entity, with very few reported cases in the literature. We report here a case of abdominal TB that manifested in the infection of an abdominal wall resulting in sinus at inguinal region and there by highlighting the Ayurvedic management of abdominal sinus by the use of Kshara Varti. Kshara Varti is  the chief modality in the treatment in the Ayurvedic science and has been explained in Nadivrana.
