Overview

abstract

  • Roentgenographic changes in a case of tuberculosis involving the esophagus were ulceration and narrowing of the esophagus, and sinus tracts to the mediastinum. Disseminated tuberculosis was discovered only at autopsy. The diagnosis of tuberculous esophagitis in a patient with no other demonstrable tuberculous lesions is difficult, as clinical and roentgenographic findings are not specific.
