What is this test?

Rapidly growing mycobacteria often grow on routine bacterial culture media within the time allotted to incubating routine bacterial cultures. Such organisms may be misidentified as "diphtheroids" and disregarded as contaminants. Pleural effusions frequently yield positive cultures in cases of pulmonary tuberculosis. The diagnosis of peritoneal tuberculosis is difficult and is usually made at laparotomy or after a considerable delay. Tuberculosis should be considered in any patient with ascitic fluid and chronic abdominal pain. Peritoneal tuberculosis accounted for 11% of a series of cases of extrapulmonary tuberculosis reported by Alvarez and McCabe.

Also known as Acid Fast Bacilli Isolation Rapid culture Pleural Fluid.
