The common causes of pleural effusion in Myanmar are tuberculosis and bronchogenic carcinoma. Evaluation of exudative pleural effusion includes studies of pleural fluid and blind needle biopsy of pleura using Abram's pleural biopsy needle or Cope's biopsy needle. However following these procedures some patients are still undiagnosed. Correcting this diagnostic deficiency the author's main interest is pleural fluid Adenosine deaminase to search for tuberculosis in pleural space.

In this study, the author found out pleural fluid Adenosine deaminase assay is highly sensitive and specific test suitable for rapid diagnosis of tuberculous pleural effusion.
