What is this test?

There are more than 70 species of Mycobacteria of which the primary pathogen is M. tuberculosis. Tuberculosis is a chronic, granulomatous disease caused by M. tuberculosis. Identification, and, if appropriate, antibiotic sensitivity, is required to initiate necessary therapy. The detection of mycobacterial DNA by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in clinical samples is a promising approach for the rapid diagnosis of tuberculous infections. The aims of this study were to evaluate PCR for detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in pleural fluids and to correlate the results with adenosine deaminase activity (ADA) estimation and acid-fast bacilli (AFB) screening. PCR represents a rapid and sensitive method for the detection of mycobacterial DNA in tuberculous pleural effusions. AFB screening has low sensitivity, and ADA estimation has both low sensitivity and specificity. Therefore, when the clinical suspicion is high and smear result is negative, but the signs and symptoms of M tuberculosis are apparent, PCR is the method of choice for identifying the infection.

Also known as Acid Fast Bacilli Detection of DNA PCR Pericardial Fluid.
