Abstract

Objective: To evaluate the utility of adenosine deaminase activity in the pleural fluid for the diagnosis of tuberculous pleural effusion from empyema of non-tubercular origin. Method: A retrospective analysis of data was performed on patients who were diagnosed to ahta vKea stutubrebrcau Hlooussp iptlaelu, rMala nefifpuasli oUnn aivnedr seimtyp, yMemanai poaf ln, oKna rtunbatearkcua,l aIrn odriiag,i nfr. oAmm Nonogv e4m6 bpeart i2e0n1t2s wtoi tFhe tburbuearrcyu l2o0u1s3 pwlheuo rauln defefruwsieonnt apnledu 2r1a lp faltuieidn tas dweintohs einmep dyeemama iwnaesree deisatigmnoastieodn ,r e2s5p epcattiiveenlyts. Adenosine deaminase in pleural fluid is estimated using colorimetric, Galanti and Guisti method. Results: Pleural fluid Adenosine Deaminase levels among tuberculous pleural effusion(109.38依 53.83 ), empyema (141.20依71.69 ) with P=0.27. Conclusion: Pleural fluid adenosine deaminase alone cannot be used as a marker for the diagnosis of tuberculous pleural effusion.
