Here, I report the case of a 31-year-old immigrant Bur-mese woman who exhibited epigastralgia, fever, weight loss and an epigastric mass. The patient was diagnosed with pancreatic TB and acquired immunodeciency syn -drome, and was treated with antituberculous drugs and percutaneous catheter drainage without a laparotomy. The clinical presentation, radiographic investigation and management of pancreatic TB are summarized in this paper to emphasize the importance of considering this rare disease in the differential diagnosis of pancreatic masses concomitant with human immunodeficiency virus infection. I also emphasize the need for both his-topathological and microbiological diagnosis via   fine-needle aspiration. © 2012 Baishideng. All rights reserved.

Pancreatic tuberculosis with acquired immunodefi-ciency syndrome: A case report and systematic review. World  J Gastroenterol   2012; 18(7): 720-726 Available from: URL: DOI: !"#$%&'(#!%"  Tuberculosis (TB) is an extremely common opportunistic infection in humanimmunodeficiencyvirus(HIV)-humanimmunodeficiencyvirus(HIV)-uman immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive patients and is considered to be an acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-defining illness [1] . Because of the virulence of TB, its symptoms tend to manifest at an early stage of HIV infection. The most overt feature of TB in HIV-seropositive patients is their substantially greater likelihood of extrapulmonary involvement and dissemination [2] . Intraabdominal involvement is frequently observed in the abdominal lymph nodes (LNs), the spleen, the peritoneum, the liver, and the gastrointestinal tract [3] . However, even in HIV-infected patients, TB of the pancreas is relatively rare  with an incidence of 0.46% based on ultrasonographic findings [4] , and isolated primary pancreatic TB is particularly rare. Because of its rarity, the natural course of the disease is currently unknown. Several case reports have included a detailed review of this subject; however,  we still lack a complete clinical picture of the disease [5-7] . Here, I report a case of pancreatic TB with AIDS that initially followed a classic pattern, but in which the patient subsequently exhibited an uncommon natural history of disease. I review the current literature regarding HIV-associated pancreatic TB. To the best of my knowledge, the present systematic review includes the largest number of published case reports on this subject, and is the rst to describe the natural history of disease in a patient with pancreatic TB and AIDS.
