We present a case report of a patient from the Philippines who presented with acute onset lower gastrointestinal bleeding, diagnosed with intestinal tuberculosis. This case highlights one of the atypical presentations of extra-pulmonary tuberculosis. Diagnosis requires endoscopic evaluation not only for histopathology but tissue culture, in order to distinguish this from other mimickers like inflammatory bowel conditions. Although more common in countries known to have a high burden of disease, including the Philippines, abdominal intestinal tuberculosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients presenting with vague abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, and caseating granulomas on histopathology.
