AbstractTwo children presented with abdominal tuberculosis. Because of the nonspecific clinical features, the diagnosis required a high index of clinical suspicion. Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) under ultrasonographic guidance allowed an early definitive diagnosis and bacteriological confirmation to guide chemotherapy. Both patients responded well to antituberculous chemotherapy.
