Adenosine deaminase (ADA) has been promoted as a quick, efficient and cost-effective method in the diagnosis of tuberculous effusions.1 However, the predictivea high value of pleural ADA is more likely to be due to tuberculosis, thus increasing the PPV of pleural ADA in the diagnosis of pleural TB. The pleural fluid adenosine deaminase levels were significantly higher in different types of exudative effusions than in transudates. An adenosine deaminase level <40 IUL1 virtually excluded a diagnosis of tuberculosis in lymphocytic pleural effusions. This study is done to fi nd out a sensitive and specifi c marker for early diagnosis of tuberculous pleural effusion.Results: Considering 40 U/L as a cut off value for Adenosine deaminase assay level, the test result was positive in 58 out of 62 patients of tuberculosis indicating sensitivity of the While in one case of hypoprotenemiea pleural fluid adenosine deaminase was 8.

Rheumatoid arthritis seems unique, however, as it cannot be differentiated from pleural tuberculosis on the basis of this test.
