  • Chronic Constrictive Pericarditis

    A serum-ascites albumin gradient 1.1 g/dL and an ascites fluid total protein 2.5 g/dL are typical of CP and other postsinusoidal causes of ascites.[] Two of these cases were initially treated as tuberculous pericarditis.[] Developing countries continue to face a significant burden of CCP secondary to tuberculous pericarditis. Surgical pericardiectomy offers potential cure.[]
