You seem as if you don't agree near the Dr. s diagnosis of Abdominal TB? Maybe you need some differential diagnosis?
Ascites is a condition where on earth excess fluid collects in the space in the abdomen call the peritoneum and can result from serous (proteinacous substances), haemorraghic (blood), or tumour cells collecting inwardly that area.
It can be due to a complication from a range of conditions and present as a symptom for even a larger number of diseases.
(to name a few)
I'm presuming they would own ruled out all the above beside preliminary physical examinations, blood tests (Complete Blood Count, Blood Film, Urea and Electrolytes, Blood Culture), urine test and lab tests (Chest Xray, ECG, Abdominal Ultrasound etc)
The Dr.s appear to have ruled out abdominal cancer by doing cytology (test on cells). But how about a metastatic cancer (cancer that spread)? If it's small satisfactory it may not be picked up on a Abdominal CT (If that was what be done) and a full body CT or MRI could be done.
Also how about immunoproliferative conditions approaching multiple myleoma or malignant lymphoma?
Hope this helped within some way
P.S. Couldn't pretty figure out what the medication represented. inH and rfp are probably isoniazid and rifampicin which is used to treat TB; not sure about the others
What are you trying to find out? I don't see a cross-examine that needs answered.
