Case Report-Port-site tuberculosis: A rare complication following laparoscopic cholecystectomy|
Tauro LeoFrancis, Satish Rao BS, Martis JohnJS, Shenoy DivakarH
A rare complication of port-site tuberculosis following laparoscopic cholecystectomy is reported. In this case, the source of infection was most probably the laparoscope and its accessories. Thus, proper sterilization of the laparoscope and instruments is of utmost importance in preventing infectious complications and ideally, autoclaving should be used for this purpose.
