A 37 year old female presented with epigastric pain and weight loss over a period of 3 months. Her abdominal CT finding showed a 4.5 cm size hepatic mass and 4.3 cm size pancreatic head mass with multiple macronodules in the liver. At the same time, her chest CT revealed a 5 cm size necrotic mass in the left lower lobe of the lung with multiple bilateral pulmonary nodules. We diagnosed these lesions as tuberculosis through multiple biopsies. She was treated with anti-tuberculous medication. After taking the medications, her symptoms were improved. Twelve months later, imaging studies indicated an improvement in the patient's health. Here we report a case report of multi-organ macronodular tuberculosis in lung, liver and pancreas.
