Clinical Presentation of Peritoneal Tuberculosis.
Proceedings (Baylor University. Medical Center)
Peritoneal tuberculosis arises from hematogenous spread of pulmonary foci or from direct spread from an adjacent structure. Diagnosis of peritoneal tuberculosis can be challenging due to nonspecific symptoms, insidious onset, and variable imaging findings. Herein, we report a patient presenting with ascites who was eventually diagnosed with peritoneal tuberculosis.
