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. Tuberculous peritonitis is not an uncommon cause of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) peritonitis. The diagnosis is usually delayed because peritoneal fluid smears for acid-fast bacilli (AFB) are insensitive, and cultures for Mycobacterium tuberculosis require weeks. The diagnosis of tuberculous peritonitis in CAPD patients is frequently delayed and may cause increased morbidity and mortality. Molecular diagnosis of tuberculous peritonitis using nucleic acid amplification tests may allow more rapid diagnosis. Further studies are required to determine the sensitivity and specificity of the technique in CAPD patients with tuberculous peritonitis.
