Significant laboratory analyses include a hematocrit of 26.7% (0.267), a platelet count of 51 × 103/μL (51 × 109/L), and a white blood cell (WBC) count of 9.0 × 103/uL (9.0 × 109/L). Her carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) level is less than 1 ng/mL (1 μg/L; normal range, 0-10 ng/mL), her human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) value is less than 5 mIU/mL (5 IU/L; normal range for a nonpregnant woman, < 5 mIU/mL), her alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) level is 0.8 ng/mL (0.8 μg/L; normal range, 0-10 ng/mL), her lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) measurement is 534 U/L (normal range, 259-613
U/L), and her cancer antigen (CA) 125 level is 509 U/mL (509 kU/L; normal range, 0-35 U/mL).
Pelvic ultrasonography indicates a normal-sized uterus and endometrial stripe; it also shows a complex, midline pelvic mass of 11 × 9 cm in size, with both solid and cystic components. This is thought to represent either an abscess or ovarian neoplasm.
At laparotomy, a large pelvic abscess is encountered and, subsequently, 1700 mL of turbid fluid is drained from the abscess cavity. The biopsies reveal multiple caseating and noncaseating granulomas with organisms compatible with Mycobacterium tuberculosis on AFB staining.
