Hye Kyung Kwon, Tae Lim Joo, Soon Mi Choi, Kook Lee, Kwan Sik Lee, Nam Hoon Cho
Abstract
Peritoneal tuberculosis is a disease rarely seen nowadays. Its symptoms are easy fatigue, abdominal distension, intermittent abdominal pain and ascites. Its onset is insidious, which si-mulates symptoms of peritonitis or carcinomatosis. Peritoneal tuberculosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis when a Patient's symptoms and signs are ascites, ovarian tumor, vague abdominal pain and abdominal distension with high serum level of CA 125, an antigenic determinant of epithelial ovarian cancers. We have recently experienced a case of peritoneal tuberculosis with markedly elevated serum level of CA 125 in 54 year-old woman and report our case with a brief review of the literature.
Key Words: CA125, Peritoneal tuberculosis
