Background/Aims: Diagnosis of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis in cirrhotic ascites is based on a polymorphonuclear leukocyte count of ascitic fluid equal or greater than 250/mm(3) in the presence of clinical signs. There is a small number of patients with positive ascitic fluid culture whose polymorphonuclear leukocyte count is less than 250/mm(3). In this study, we assessed the diagnostic value of serum high sensitivity C-reactive protein in spontaneous bacterial peritonitis with nonneutrocytic ascites.
