摘要

Pseudo-Meigs症候群的定義是,除了良性實體卵巢腫瘤外,凡其它任何良性或惡性之骨盆腔腫瘤之患者,合併發生非惡性之肋膜積水及腹水。我們報告一位三十八歲的肥胖女性患者,因大量右側肋膜積水而住院;其肋膜積水之數據顯示為以淋巴球為主,且腺苷酸脫氨基酶(adenosine deaminase, ADA)活性高之滲出液(exudate)。這位患者起初被懷疑為結核性肋膜炎接受抗結核藥物治療,然而其肋膜積水並未改善,每天仍有高達1100~1800 ml 從胸管引流出來;進一步檢查發現了合併產生的腹水及卵巢癌。經外科手術切除卵巢腫瘤後,肋膜積水及腹水皆明顯減少,且經過一年的持續追蹤後,並無復發的情況。這份病例報告顯示在pseudo-Meigs症候群患者的肋膜積水為以淋巴球為主且ADA的活性是增加的。雖然pseudo-Meigs症候群是一相對少見的疾病,但是當發現有高ADA活性與淋巴球為主之滲出性肋膜積水時,仍應將其列為鑑別診斷之一。
