Çocukluk çağında tüberküloz peritonit

Tüberküloz peritonit, özellikle çocuklarda oldukça nadirdir. Başvuru yakınmalarının çeşitliliği, hastalığın belirtilerinin kolay fark edilir olmaması ve tanıda kullanılan tetkiklerin sınırlı olması nedeniyle tanı aşamasında güçlükler yaşanmaktadır. Bu durum, komplikasyonların ve mortalite oranlarının artmasına yol açmaktadır. Özellikle yüksek riskli popülasyonlarda erken tanı için öncelikle hastalıktan kuşkulanmak esastır. Bu yazıda, hastalığın semptomları, tanıda kullanılan yöntemler, ayırıcı tanı ve hastalığın tedavisi literatür ışığında gözden geçirilmiştir.

Tuberculous peritonitis in childhood

Tuberculous peritonitis is an uncommon presentation of tuberculosis especially in children. The diagnosis of tuberculous peritonitis is difficult because of the variability of presentation, the protean nature of the manifestation and the limitation of diagnostic tests. Therefore, the diagnosis is often delayed and the rate of complications and mortality increases. High level of suspicion is required for early diagnosis especially in a high-risk population. In this article, we reviewed the symptoms, diagnostic tests, differential diagnosis and treatment of infection based on a systematic review of the literature.
