  • Ulcerative Colitis

    Ulcerative colitis (UC) is an idiopathic chronic inflammatory disease of the colon that follows a course of relapse and remission. In a small number of cases, ulcerative colitis is associated with extra-intestinal features. Disease extent can be divided into: Distal disease (left-sided colitis): colitis confined to the[…][]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Pulmonary tuberculosis can be confirmed by positive bacteriology of sputum, bronchial aspirate or by biopsies (microscopy and/ or culture) or by histopathological examination highlighting specific tuberculous granulomas.
