Abstract

A 37-year-old man was referred to the department of internal medicine for chronic fever, asthenia and loss of weight. He had no relevant medical history but reported frequent travels to Africa. Abdominal-CT study with contrast agent injection and oral digestive opacification was performed and revealed pleuroperitoneal and pericardial effusions with multiple mediastinal and mesenteric lymphadenopathies. Bronchoalveolar lavage and sputum expectoration analyses demonstrated systemic tuberculosis.
