[High CA-125 values in miliary tuberculosis and ascites].


High levels of CA-125, the specific tumour marker for epithelial ovarian cancers are also found in inflammatory diseases of the pelvis. This case report of a 28 year-old woman with pathological CA-125 levels demonstrates the association between this finding and ascites caused by miliary tuberculosis. Tuberculostatic chemotherapy led to normalisation of the CA-125 levels within 8 weeks.
