    After a pericardiectomy done to restore cardiac compensation and to identify etiological factors, a tuberculous pericarditis (TBP) was diagnosed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Two of these cases were initially treated as tuberculous pericarditis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Tuberculous pericarditis.

    Abstract Diagnosis of tuberculous pericarditis remains a challenge.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There are, however, limited resources available for making a definitive diagnosis of tuberculous pericarditis. The diagnosis is largely based on clinical criteria.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] By contrast, tuberculous pericarditis accounts for only 4% of cases in developed countries [3].[southsudanmedicaljournal.com]
