GOMEZ-PINA, Juan José. Peritoneal tuberculosis. Med. interna Méx. [online]. 2018, vol.34, n.3, pp.490-496. ISSN 0186-4866.

Nowadays, peritoneal tuberculosis is an entity that has been overdiagnosed in many instances of health, not only in Mexico, it is sufficient to note in the literature that this situation is still manifest. In addition, this entity proves to be difficult to diagnose without proper interrogation, as well as adequate cabinet and laboratory diagnostic tools. Therefore, the need arises to carry out an adequate interrogation when the symptoms are clear about the entity treated. However, it should be noted that Mexico is a country in which there are still abundant cases of tuberculosis, so timely diagnosis improves not only the survival, but also the quality of life these patients come to have after their illness.
