PMID:  3893954     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Knowledge of the "pseudokidney sign" has proven beneficial in order to identify bowel lesions during ultrasound examinations. Numerous causes of the "pseudokidney sign" have been reported. Until now, however, there have been no published reports describing its association with tuberculosis. A description is given of a case of ileal tuberculosis identified by ultrasound, together with an explanation of its cause.
