Tuberculous Pleurisy Diagnosed From Massive Pleural Effusion in an Older Patient With No History of Tuberculosis.

Decreased daily activities can contribute to a lack of time for doing invasive procedures to establish a clear diagnosis of pleural effusion. We tentatively diagnosed tuberculous pleurisy for the large pleural effusion and treated her well with the introduction of four antituberculosis drugs based on the high value of adenosine deaminase. ADA in pleural effusion diagnosis among elderly patients with limited mobility is considered effective for diagnosis. Likewise, although it is difficult to spot tuberculous pleurisy in older patients, older patients' lives in their homes are vital.
