222. The use of adenosine deaminase and interferon-gamma as diagnostic tools for tuberculous pericarditis. (PubMed)

The use of adenosine deaminase and interferon-gamma as diagnostic tools for tuberculous pericarditis. Traditional diagnostic tests for pericardial tuberculosis (TB) are insensitive and often require long culture periods, and this has led to more emphasis being placed on biochemical tests such as the pericardial adenosine deaminase (ADA) test. However, controversy exists as to its diagnostic utility. In addition, the use of interferon (IFN)-gamma, which is a reliable indicator of pleural (...) and peritoneal TB, has not been explored in pericardial effusions. We investigated ADA and IFN-gamma levels in pericardial effusions of different etiologies.A prospective study was carried out from February 1995 to February 1998 at Tygerberg Hospital (South Africa), with pericardial taps being performed under echocardiographic guidance. During this period, 110 consecutive patients presenting with large pericardial effusions were included in the study. Diagnoses were made according to predetermined criteria

223. Systematic review: tuberculous peritonitis--presenting features, diagnostic strategies and treatment. (PubMed)

Systematic review: tuberculous peritonitis--presenting features, diagnostic strategies and treatment. The peritoneum is one of the most common extrapulmonary sites of tuberculous infection. Peritoneal tuberculosis remains a significant problem in parts of the world where tuberculosis is prevalent. Increasing population migration, usage of more potent immunosuppressant therapy and the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome epidemic has contributed to a resurgence of this disease in regions where (...) it had previously been largely controlled. Tuberculous peritonitis frequently complicates patients with underlying end-stage renal or liver disease that further adds to the diagnostic difficulty. The diagnosis of this disease, however, remains a challenge because of its insidious nature, the variability of its presentation and the limitations of available diagnostic tests. A high index of suspicion is needed whenever confronted with unexplained ascites, particularly in high-risk patients. Based

224. Tuberculous peritonitis in different dialysis patients in Southern Taiwan. (PubMed)

Tuberculous peritonitis in different dialysis patients in Southern Taiwan. Eleven cases of tuberculous peritonitis (TBP) in hemodialysis (HD) and continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients at the Kaohsiung Veterans General Hospital in Kaohsiung, Taiwan between 1991 and 2000 were studied retrospectively (six cases in the HD group and five cases in the CAPD group) The diagnosis of TBP was established by either positive ascite tuberculosis (TB) culture or biopsy-proven chronic (...) diagnosis and resulted in low morbidity and mortality in our patients. Based on our review of all possible abstracts found in a Medline search from 1966 to 2002 using the keywords tuberculosis, peritonitis, uremia, and dialysis, this may be the first study of TBP in different dialysis patients.

225. Value of adenosine deaminase (ADA) in ascitic fluid for the diagnosis of tuberculous peritonitis: a meta-analysis. (PubMed)

Value of adenosine deaminase (ADA) in ascitic fluid for the diagnosis of tuberculous peritonitis: a meta-analysis. Adenosine deaminase (ADA) levels are used for diagnosing tuberculosis in several locations and although many studies have evaluated ADA levels in ascitic fluid. These studies have defined arbitrary cut-off points creating difficulties in the clinical application of the results. The goals of this study are: to determine the usefulness of ADA levels in ascitic fluid as a diagnostic (...) test for peritoneal tuberculosis (PTB) and define the best cut-off point.A systematic review was done on the basis of 2 independent searches. We selected prospective studies that included consecutive patients. Diagnosis of PTB had to be confirmed by bacteriologic or histologic methods and ADA levels determined by the Giusti method. Inclusion/exclusion criteria were applied by 2 independent reviewers. A receiver operating characteristic curve was constructed to establish the optimal cut-off point

229. Increased CA 125 in a patient with tuberculous peritonitis: case report and review of published works. (PubMed)

Increased CA 125 in a patient with tuberculous peritonitis: case report and review of published works. A case of a middle aged woman with weight loss, ascites, and a pleural effusion is presented where a clinical diagnosis of ovarian cancer was made. Her CA 125 was greatly increased at 873 IU/ml and the ascites was a lymphocytic exudate but cytology failed to show malignant cells. Operative biopsy showed numerous noncaseating granulomas in the omentum but no mycobacterial organisms were seen (...) . Empiric antituberculous treatment was started before positive culture results were received and when treatment had ended both the ascites and pleural effusion had resolved and the CA 125 had fallen to 7 IU/ml. Review of published works showed several other examples of tuberculous peritonitis associated with increased CA 125 and the possible cause of raised CA 125 in this condition is discussed.

231. Tuberculous peritonitis-associated mortality is high among patients waiting for the results of mycobacterial cultures of ascitic fluid samples. (PubMed)

Tuberculous peritonitis-associated mortality is high among patients waiting for the results of mycobacterial cultures of ascitic fluid samples. We identified 60 cases of tuberculous peritonitis during the past 12 years at our health care center. Most of the patients had severe underlying medical conditions, such as cirrhosis, renal failure, diabetes mellitus, and malignancy. Abnormal chest radiograph findings, ascitic fluid lymphocytosis, and biochemical findings for exudates could only (...) with higher mortality rates. Standard antituberculous chemotherapy is highly effective. However, conventional microbiologic diagnostic methods are slow and not sensitive enough for establishing a diagnosis of tuberculous peritonitis.

232. Ascitic fluid gamma interferon concentrations and adenosine deaminase activity in tuberculous peritonitis. (PubMed)

Ascitic fluid gamma interferon concentrations and adenosine deaminase activity in tuberculous peritonitis. The gamma interferon (gamma-IFN) concentration and the adenosine deaminase (ADA) activity were evaluated in 30 patients with tuberculous peritonitis, 21 patients with ascites due to a malignant disorder, and 41 patients with cirrhosis. The gamma-IFN concentrations were significantly higher (p < 0.0001) in tuberculous peritonitis patients (mean: 6.70 U/ml) than in the malignant (mean: 3.10 (...) U/ml) and cirrhotic (mean: 3.08 U/ml) groups. Use of a cut off value of > or = 3.2 U/ml gave the assay a sensitivity of 93% (25 of 27), a specificity of 98% (54 of 55), positive (P+) and negative (P-) predictive values of 96% and a test accuracy of 96%. The ADA activity was significantly (p < 0.0001) higher in the tuberculous peritonitis group (mean: 101.84 U/l) than in the control groups (cirrhosis (mean: 13.49 U/l) and malignancy (mean: 19.35 U/l)).

Adenosine deaminase activity in the diagnosis of tuberculous peritonitis. We studied the activity of adenosine deaminase in the peritoneal fluid of 66 patients who were divided into five groups according to causes of ascites as follows: tuberculous peritonitis (group I), septic peritonitis (group II), secondary to malignant tumours (group III), miscellaneous conditions (group IV), and control subjects of transudates (group V). In patients with tuberculous peritonitis the enzyme activity (...) was significantly higher than for the rest of the groups (p less than 0.001), and enzyme concentrations in all patients were well above the upper non-tuberculous value. Adenosine deaminase activity in the peritoneal fluid has proved to be a simple and reliable method for early diagnosis of tuberculous peritonitis.
