Adenosine deaminase (Enzymes Commission No 3.5.4.4) is an enzyme capable of catalysing the catabolism of purine bases. Previous studies have shown that this enzyme may be useful in recognition of a tuberculous aetiology of pleural, peritoneal, or meningeal effusions.-̀ s Adenosine deaminase assay is a simple, sensitive, and specific diagnostic procedure in these conditions but its use in diagnosis of tuberculous pericarditis has not previously been reported.
