We present a case of tuberculous peritonitis in a woman with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), treated with adalimumab, and we review the association between anti-tumour necrosis factor (anti-TNF) therapy and tuberculosis. There have been only 2 case reports of peritoneal tuberculosis associated with anti-TNF 1 2, and only 1 with adalimumab.
