Résumé

Les auteurs rapportent le cas d’un malade âgé de 42 ans, souffrant d’une cirrhose hépatique compliquée d’ascite réfractaire au traitement diurétique conventionnel. La laparoscopie associée á la biopsie péritonéale guidée a permis de poser le diagnostic définitif de tuberculose péritonéale associée á la cirrhose hépatique. Les auteurs discutent le rôle de la laparoscopie avec biopsies péritoneales dirigées, dans le diagnostic et le traitement de cette affection.

Cirrhosis complicated with peritoneal tuberculosis Unusual cause of refractory ascitis

Summary

A 42-year-old male previously diagnosed as suffering from cirrhotic ascites and who had not responded to conventional diuretic therapy was admitted to our clinic for further examination. Laparoscopy with guided peritoneal biopsy allows us to obtain a final diagnosis of tuberculous peritonitis associated with liver cirrhosis. We discuss the role of laparoscopy with target peritoneal biopsy in the diagnosis and the management of this condition.
