  • Abdominal Tenderness in ascites patients does not indicate spontaneous bacterial peritonitis.
    European journal of internal medicine, 2007
    Co-Authors: Martial Koenig, Pascal Cathébras
    Abstract:

    We read with interest Wallerstedt et al.’s paper on spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) in patients with ascites [1]. However, we believe that the title of the article is highly misleading. Given a positive predictive value of Abdominal Tenderness for SBP at 20%, it cannot be asserted that “Abdominal Tenderness in ascites patients indicates spontaneous bacterial peritonitis”, even if it is correct to state that “the absence of Abdominal Tenderness strongly contradicts SBP”, given the high negative predictive value of this clinical sign. In this study, Abdominal Tenderness has a sensitivity of 70% and a specificity of 77%, which allows one to calculate a positive likelihood ratio (LR) of 2.6, indicating an overall modest diagnostic gain in the presence of Abdominal Tenderness in ascites patients [2].
