A 5 cm intestinal tissue was harvested from 5 cm above the ileocecum, fixed in 10% formaldehyde solution, embedded in paraffin, sectioned, and stained with hematoxylin and eosin.
An ileal segment 15 cm long was isolated 30 cm proximal to the ileocecum. The ileal side-to-side reanastomosis was performed cranially to the ileal conduit using 80-mm stapler and 4-0 Vicryl was used for the closure of the mesenteric defect to prevent internal hernia.
For ICIC, a 15-20 cm ileum segment was identified approximately 30 cm away from the ileocecum. A 60-mm Endo-GIA stapler was used to divide the bowel lumen on both sides of the conduit.
When the gastrointestinal (GI) system is involved, the ileocecum is most often affected, with appendicular involvement a rarity [3, 4].
During endoscopy, biopsies from colon or ileocecum or small intestine were obtained from patients and healthy subjects.

Among the remaining 74 abdominal patients, the mesentery (including mesenteric lymph node) with or without greater omentum involvement accounting for 71.6% (53/74), followed by ileocecum (18 cases, 24.3%) and 3 cases in colon.
Two cases, including ours, involved the cecum or ileocecum. (13) Two cases involved the appendix, (10) 2 had lesions in the colon not otherwise specified, (10,14) 1 in the descending colon, (11) 2 in the sigmoid colon, (15-16) and 3 in the rectum.
(11) Gastrointestinal TB most often affects the ileocecum, (34) although my practice has seen tuberculosis in the setting of HIV at all levels of the GI tract.
