CELIS ZAPATA, Juan et al. Cáncer de Páncreas y Linfadenitis Tuberculosa Peripancreática: Reporte de un caso y revisión de la literatura. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2007, vol.27, n.2, pp.199-202. ISSN 1022-5129.

Pancreatic tuberculosis and peripancreatic tuberculous lymphadenitis are rare conditions mainly affecting young women, and often occur in endemic areas and immunocompromised patients. The presentation of this condition could be similar to a malign neoplasm. However, coexistence of both pathologies is still very rare and just one case has been reported. A case of synchronism of peripancreatic tuberculous lymphadenitis and pancreatic adenocarcinoma in a 79-year-old woman is presented.

Keywords : pancreatic cancer; peripancreatic tuberculous lymphadenitis.
