  • Other Comments:

    The paper is well written. Deep vein thrombosis in tuberculosis was previously reported to be associated with retroperitoneal and para-aortic node enlargement. This was not the case in the current report. The discussion that tuberculosis itself can be hypercoagulable is valid.
