Tuberculous peritonitis

Tuberculous peritonitis is a chronic and diffuse inflammation of the peritoneum caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The infection route of this disease can be directly spread by intraperitoneal tuberculosis or blood transmission. The former is more common, such as intestinal tuberculosis, mesenteric lymphatic tuberculosis, tubal tuberculosis and so on, which can be the direct primary focus of the disease. It is more common in middle-aged and young people, and women are slightly more than men, which is 1.2 ~ 2.0 ∶ 1. More women than men may be caused by retrograde infection of pelvic tuberculosis.
