Study Of Adenosine Deaminase Level In Bronchoalveolar Lavage Fluid And Its Correlation With Genxpert In Sputum Negative Suspected Pulmonary Tuberculosis And Suspected Lung Malignancy.
Tuberculosis (TB) has been one of the health problems in the world. Diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis based on finding of AFB in the sputum has several limitations. So we decided to evaluate ADA activity in BAL fluid and correlate it with BAL GenXpert result and we used suspected lung malignancy patients as control. Total 33 patients - 17 suspected TB, 16 suspected lung malignancy were enrolled in study and subjected to onchoscopy and BAL fluid was submitted for ADA level and GenXpert for TB.Increased BAL level was well correlared with GenXpert positivity in suspected TB group.
