We report the case of a male with no medical history with acute cholangitis secondary to a pancreatic head´s mass suggestive of neoplasm. An EUS-FNA was performed where no atypical cells were identified but a granulomatous component did. The patient was finally diagnosed of disseminated tuberculosis with pancreatic involvement. Pancreatic tuberculosis is an infrequent entity that requires a high index of suspicion due to the variability of its forms of presentation and the high morbidity and mortality without targeted therapy.

Abstract Tuberculosis (TB) still represents a major public health issue in spite of the significant impact of the efforts made by the World Health Organization (WHO) and partners to improve its control. In 2014 WHO launched a new global strategy (End TB) with a vision of a world free of TB, and a 2035 goal of TB elimination (defined as less than one incident case per million). The aim of this article is to summarise the theoretical bases of the End TB Strategy and to analyse progresses and persistent obstacles on the way to TB elimination.The evolution of the WHO recommended strategies of TB control (Directly Obse...

Gomgnimbou, Lorenna Oliveira Suzarte, Maria H. Féres Saad, Sajid Ali, José Dominguez, Edita Pimkina, Elena Zholdybayeva, Christophe Sola, Guislaine Refrégier Several diagnostic tests are being developed to detect drug resistance in tuberculosis. In line with previous developments detecting rifampicin and isoniazid resistance using microbead-based systems (spoligoriftyping and TB-SPRINT), we present here an assay called TB-EFI d...

Authors: Liu Q, Pan L, Han F, Luo B, Jia H, Xing A, Li Q, Zhang Z Abstract Severe pulmonary tuberculosis (STB) is a life‑threatening condition with high economic and social burden. The present study aimed to screen for distinct proteins in different stages of TB and identify biomarkers for a better understanding of TB progression and pathogenesis. Blood samples were obtained from 81 patients with STB, 80 with mild TB (MTB) and 50 healthy controls. Differentially expressed proteins were identified using liquid chromatography‑tandem mass spectrometry‑based label‑free quantitative proteomic analysis. Func...

Authors: Lamuraglia M, Barrascout E, Medioni J Abstract The authors report a case of women, 51-year-old that presented with peritoneal tuberculosis, with concomitant adrenocortical primitive neoplasm, mistaken as peritoneal carcinomatosis, due to the failure of correct histological analysis. In fact, the critical life status, associated to increases of CA 125, typical imaging of peritoneal carcinomatosis, and presence of 75% atypical cells in ascitic fluid, induced to begin chemotherapy.
