Özet

Introduction: Tuberculosis (TB) remains a public health problem worldwide. Peritoneal tuberculosis or tuberculous peritonitis (TBP) is an uncommon form of extrapulmonary infection with a proportional increasing of its incidence. This disease is seen most commonly in young adults, and has a highly variable clinical symptomatology. Our aim is to highlight the nonspecific presentation and diagnostic difficulties of the TBP.
