This case was clinically suspected to be peritoneal carcinomatosis or peritoneal tuberculosis based on clinical, biochemical, and radiological features. However, effusion cytology, cell(More)

Therefore, there is a need to collate information on these disorders, as their incidence is on a constant rise and some of these pathologies can severely debilitate the patient's quality of life. These disorders are parietal wall(More)
