Introduction: Tuberculosis is relatively common in reproductive age and thereby can be observed in pregnancy. Some of the clinical presentations of tuberculosis overlap with nonspecific symptoms that are found in normal pregnancy. Therefore, delay in diagnosis is understandable. The aim of our study is to indicate that tuberculosis is related to sanitary inadequacy and crowding and should be considered in every patient with such circumstances.
Case Presentation: This case report is about a pregnant woman who referred to us with low-grade fever and ascites and then disseminated intravascular coagulation was observable. Accordingly, several differential diagnoses were considered, and eventually, visceral tuberculosis was detectable.
Conclusions: It is recommended that tuberculosis be considered in every patient even without any response to the usual treatments. Extrapulmonary tuberculosis, which is more common in pregnancy, poses a tremendous challenge on the diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis.
