Resumen en español Se describe el caso clínico de una paciente desnutrida de la República de Djibouti, de 24 años de edad y procedencia rural, atendida en el Servicio de Urgencia de Cirugía por presentar dolor en hipogastrio, fijo, mantenido y punzante, que se intensificaba progresivamente, además de náuseas y vómitos biliosos. En la exploración bimanual se palpó una masa anexial en el lado derecho, muy dolorosa, de casi 8 cm. Los exámenes realizados confirmaron la presencia de un (mas) quiste de ovario torcido y posible tuberculosis peritoneal, lo cual se comprobó con el diagnóstico peroperatorio. La joven evolucionó satisfactoriamente y fue trasladada al Servicio de Medicina para tratamiento antibacilar.

One third of the world population is infected TB. It will cost at least, 35 millions of human lives. In sub-Saharan Africa , every year, more than 1, 5 million of TB cases are reported.

One third of the HIV infected people end up with TB. Progresses in the fight against TB are still insufficient in Africa , according to The WHO; this continent represents a 24% of the newly reported cases at a world level. One of the causes must be the insufficient financing of the programs of fight against the disease that killed almost 1, 7 millions people in the world in 2004.
