Chinese Abstract

結核病的表現變化多端,因此增加了診斷上的困難。這裡提出的是一個有趣的病例,病人因為不明原因的發燒以及頑固性的癲癇發作而來就醫。骨骼掃瞄發現在胃、兩側肺部及兩側髖部等軟組織的放射活性增加。後來根據骨髓培養的結果而診斷為結核病,臨床症狀也在治療之後獲得改善。

English Abstract

Tuberculosis is a disease well known for its highly variable clinical presentation and thus difficulty to diagnose. We report an interesting case of a patient admitted due to fever of unknown origin and intractable seizures. Soft tissue uptake of a bone-seeking-agent was seen in the lungs, stomach and bil. hip region. Tuberculosis was later diagnosed after bone marrow culture.
