Vasculitis plays an important part in the natural history of abdominal tuberculosis. Here we report an unusual case of mesenteric vasculitis secondary to tuberculosis in ten year old girl who presented with pain abdomen and weight loss. The case was confirmed by highly positive tuberculin test and Doppler study showing altered flow in mesenteric vessels. The flow pattern and patient condition improved after anti-tuberculosis treatment.
