    Peritoneal tuberculosis accounts for 0.1-0.7% of all tuberculosis patients, the clinical signs are non-specific apart from a complication; The incidence of intestinal obstruction due to tuberculosis bands from 12% to 60%. Tuberculosis can affect any part of the body, but the abdomen is one of the most common sites after the lungs, The clinical presentation of abdominal tuberculosis is usually nonspecific and, therefore, often leads to a delay in diagnosis and thus the development of complications such as intestinal obstruction, Imaging plays an important role in the positive diagnosis of the occlusion. We report the case of a 61-year-old patient with no particular pathological history admitted to the emergency room with a bowel obstruction syndrome which the surgical exploration found a bowel obstruction on a primary tuberculosis band.
