Abstract

Cystic fibrosis is deemed to be uncommon in India. The presentation is usually in the childhood although more cases are now being recognized in adolescence and adulthood. We report a case of an adolescent male who had been treated for recurrent pulmonary infections and received anti-tubercular therapy for a possible diagnosis of sputum negative pulmonary tuberculosis and was evaluated for steatorrhea. The presence of pancreatic exocrine insufficiency along with pancreatic lipomatosis suggested the diagnosis of cystic fibrosis.
