Abstract
The tuberculous peritonitis, especially in pregnancy, is very rare and difficult to diagnose since there is no diagnostic clue and limitation of diagnostic means. The clinical features may vary such as fever, chill, tachycardia, abdominal tenderness or rebound tenderness which are not controlled easily with antibiotics. It is possible to diagnose by AFB culture and biopsy through exploro-laparotomy which is done due to uncontrolled symptoms even to unstable vital signs. It's clinical symptoms and signs are dramatically improved with antituberculotic therapy. Recently we have experienced a case of tubeculous peritonitis at 29 weeks gestation which was diagnosed through exploro-laparotomy including cesarean section. So we report this case with a brief review of literature
Key Words: Tuberculous peritonitis, pregnancy
