Mycobacterium heckeshornense peritonitis in a peritoneal dialysis patient: a case report and review of the literature. We report the first case of peritonitis attributed to Mycobacterium heckeshornense. This is a rare, non-tuberculous mycobacterium that has been reported as an aetiological agent in a growing number and widening spectrum of infections.© 2011 The Authors.

86. Ascitic Fluid Total Protein, a useful marker in non-portal hypertensive ascites. (Abstract)

in differential diagnosis of ascites. At the predetermined cut-off value of 25 g/L, quantitative AFTP assay was more useful in the differentiation of non-portal hypertensive ascites from portal hypertensive ascites compared with the exudate-transudate classification, area under curve of receiver operating characteristic curve was 0.958. Quantitative AFTP assay was superior to serum-ascites albumin gradient in the detection of non-portal hypertensive ascites, especially malignant ascites and tuberculous (...) peritonitis. In mixed ascites, AFTP was useful in identifying peritoneal lesions.Ascitic fluid total protein is a useful marker in non-portal hypertensive ascites; thus, it should be determined in diagnostic work-up of the patients with ascites.© 2019 Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology Foundation and John Wiley & Sons Australia, Ltd.

included in the study. The study focused on 47 cases. The average age of patients was 42.2 years. Eighteen women were from rural areas. Tuberculous contact was found in five cases. In all cases, the onset was insidious. Twenty-three patients showed one or several signs of TB infection. Tuberculin intradermal reaction (IDR) test was performed in 35 women (74.8%), it was positive in 26 cases (74%). Thirty-nine patients (83%) had undergone radiological examination using abdomino-pelvis ultrasound (...) and/or CT scan. Diagnostic coelioscopy was performed in 37 cases (75.5%). Anatomopathological examination helped to confirm the diagnosis of GT in 42 cases (89.3%), showing epithelioid and giant-cell granuloma. We identified 21 cases of isolated GT, the remaining 26 cases had peritoneal involvement. All patients received specific antibiotic therapy combining isoniazid, rifampicin, pyrazinamide and ethamubutol with an average treatment duration of 12 months. No patient received corticosteroids

89. Bursite tuberculeuse de l’épaule chez une insuffisante rénale chronique: à propos d’un cas Full Text available with Trip Pro

Bursite tuberculeuse de l’épaule chez une insuffisante rénale chronique: à propos d’un cas Tuberculosis of the shoulder is rare. It encompasses all articular and periarticular tuberculouses of the shoulder. Its insidious evolution, mimicking inflammatory and degenerative diseases, reflects the frequency of its diagnostic delay. We report a rare case of tuberculous bursitis of the shoulder in a woman living in rural areas, with renal insufficiency and treated for peritoneal TB and psoas (...) . The anamnesis revealed signs of tuberculous impregnation. Clinical examination showed painful swelling of the shoulder associated with stiffness. MRI of the shoulder objectified infectious bursal disease. Its tuberculous origin was confirmed by the histological examination of ultrasound-guided synovial biopsy. The patient underwent TB treatment with good outcome. At 9-year follow-up, the patient had satisfactory articular function with no recurrence of infectious disease.

Large Mesenteric Cyst Mimicking Tuberculous Ascites Background. Intraabdominal lesions such as mesenteric cysts are uncommon disorders. Most are discovered incidentally during routine abdominal examinations. Methods. We report a patient with a mesenteric cyst masquerading as tuberculous peritonitis and ascites. Conclusion.

92. Adenosine deaminase and tuberculous meningitis--a systematic review with meta-analysis. (Abstract)

Adenosine deaminase and tuberculous meningitis--a systematic review with meta-analysis. Tuberculous meningitis (TBM) is a severe infection of the central nervous system, particularly in developing countries. Prompt diagnosis and treatment are necessary to decrease the high rates of disability and death associated with TBM. The diagnosis is often time and labour intensive; thus, a simple, accurate and rapid diagnostic test is needed. The adenosine deaminase (ADA) activity test is a rapid test (...) that has been used for the diagnosis of the pleural, peritoneal and pericardial forms of tuberculosis. However, the usefulness of ADA in TBM is uncertain. The aim of this study was to evaluate ADA as a diagnostic test for TBM in a systematic review. A systematic search was performed of the medical literature (MEDLINE, LILACS, Web of Science and EMBASE). The ADA values from TBM cases and controls (diagnosed with other types of meningitis) were necessary to calculate the sensitivity and specificity. Out

Ventriculo-ureteral shunt insertion using percutaneous nephrostomy: a novel minimally invasive option in a patient with chronic hydrocephalus complicated by multiple distal ventriculoperitoneal shunt failures. The management of ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt failure is a common problem in neurosurgical practice. On occasion, extraperitoneal sites for CSF diversion are required when shunting to the peritoneal cavity has failed after multiple attempts. The authors report a novel minimally (...) invasive procedure allowing cannulation of the ureter for the purpose of ventriculo-ureteral (VU) shunting. Sixteen years prior to presentation, this 46-year-old woman had contracted tuberculous meningitis and had chronic hydrocephalus, with multiple distal shunt failures in recent months. A percutaneous nephrostomy was used to pass the distal catheter based on intraoperative retrograde pyelography. Following successful placement of the VU shunt, the patient's hydrocephalus stabilized and she returned

Tubercular abdominal cocoon in children – a single centre study in remote area of northern India Amongst the numerous causes of intestinal obstruction listed in the literature, sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis also called Abdominal Cocoon (AC) is one of the rarest entities. Its characteristic feature is a thick fibrotic membrane encasing varying lengths of the small and large gut in a cocoon. In India, there is an increasing incidence of tuberculosis, especially in the rural areas.The aim (...) of this study was to investigate the clinical presentation and evaluate the operative findings of tuberculous AC. We also evaluated the outcomes and response to anti tuberculous treatment (ATT) in all the patients diagnosed with this condition.This study was carried out at M.M.

100. MKSAP: 68-year-old man with new-onset ascites

? A. Alcoholic cirrhosis B. Constrictive pericarditis C. Nonalcoholic cirrhosis D. Tuberculous peritonitis MKSAP Answer and Critique The correct answer is B. Constrictive pericarditis. The most likely diagnosis is constrictive pericarditis. This patient has undergone previous cardiac surgery, which is a risk factor for constrictive pericarditis. Ascitic fluid analysis should include measurement of albumin and total protein; cell count and bacterial cultures should be checked when infection is suspected (...) of this patient’s ascites. Tuberculous peritonitis is very uncommon and is associated with a SAAG less than 1.1 g/dL (11 g/L), an ascitic fluid total protein level greater than 3 g/dL (30 g/L), and a lymphocytic predominance in the cell count with differential. Although this patient has a high ascitic fluid total protein level, the SAAG is greater than 1.1 g/dL (11 g/L) and he does not have a predominance of lymphocytes on the ascitic fluid cell count. Key Point A serum-ascites albumin gradient (SAAG) of 1.1 g
