Isolated periportal tuberculous adenitis is rare.
Computed tomography (TC) is the primary modality for its detection and evaluation. Although not definitive, in the presence of an appropriate clinical history and a positive purified protein derivative test, a diagnosis of periportal tuberculous lymphadenopathy may be suggested by CT by the presence of low-density enlarged porta hepatis lymph nodes with immediate postcontrast peripheral rim enhancement.
