Resumen

GUERRA MACIAS, Ileana; RIZO REVE, Rafael  y  HERNANDEZ COBOS, Salvador. Peritoneal tuberculosis in a young adult. MEDISAN [online]. 2009, vol.13, n.5. ISSN 1029-3019.

The clinical case of a undernourished 24-year-old patient of the Republic of Djibouti who lived in a rural region is described. She was attended in the Emergency Department of Surgery due to a fixed, continuous and stabbing hypogastric pain, which was intensified progressively besides nauseas and bilious vomiting. A very painful adnexal mass of almost 8 cm was palpated in the right side with a bimanual exploration. Examinations confirmed the presence of a bent ovaric cyst and a possible peritoneal tuberculosis, which was proven with intraoperative diagnosis. She made a good progress and was transferred to the Medicine Service for antibacillary treatment.
