Tuberculosis is a contagious infectious disease. This disease is called tuberculosis and is abbreviated as TB. Tuberculosis is one of the most important infectious diseases of this century, which can involve all the organs of the body, but the lungs are most affected by tuberculosis. The occurrence of 10 million new cases of tuberculosis and the treatment of only two-thirds of them, which unfortunately was incomplete in more than 50% of cases, shows the depth of the disaster in these years. The occurrence of three epidemics of this disease in the last two decades shows that the prospect of controlling tuberculosis soon is very uncertain. Today, more than 8 million people are infected with this disease in the world every year, and until now, one-third of the world's people have been infected with the germ of tuberculosis without feeling sick. Tuberculous peritonitis is an uncommon disorder; sometimes, it is not considered in the initial evaluation of ascites. A negative 5-TU PPD test, or a low level of ascitic fluid protein, can mistakenly divert attention from tuberculosis. Tuberculosis peritonitis can be fatal if not diagnosed in time. Here we report a 67-year-old patient who was confirmed to have tuberculous peritonitis after clinical examination and laboratory diagnosis. The patient recovered after diagnosis with prescribed drugs.
