Puerperal disseminated tuberculosis: a case report

Nishant Nayyar, Dinesh Sood, Lokesh Rana, Padam Negi


Disseminated tuberculosis is a potentially lethal form of tuberculosis (TB) in which infection has spread by lymphohematogenous dissemination of Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacilli from the lungs to other parts of the body, with multiple organs affected. Disseminated tuberculosis can occur within weeks of infection with tuberculosis or after years. Tuberculosis is common in pregnancy and puerperium, but disseminated TB is rare, with potential lethal maternal and fetal outcomes. We report a case of a 29 years old female who developed disseminated tuberculosis in puerperium with involvement of lungs, liver and spleen.
