Hepatobiliary involvement is a less common manifestation of abdominal tuberculosis. We present the case of a 42-year-old female who presented with fever, abdominal pain, and jaundice of 2 months duration. 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography done for disease evaluation suggested the likely possibility of cholangiocarcinoma but excision biopsy from periportal lymph node later confirmed a granulomatous etiology and she was successfully treated with antitubercular therapy.
