Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Congenital tuberculosis is a rare disease which is curable after early diagnosis. Making an early diagnosis of tuberculosis in an infant is difficult, however, because of its nonspecific clinical findings. It therefore requires a high index of suspicion. In this paper we report the case of an infant with disseminated congenital tuberculosis involving the chest, liver, spleen, abdominal lymph nodes, mesentery, and peritoneum, and which presented as chylous ascites with peritonitis.
