Presence of intestinal obstruction along with ascites in young patient with constituional symptoms suggests infective etiology rather than inflammatory disease.. Most likely Tuberculosis ,crohns disease ,eosinophilic enteritis or vasculitis. Comsider EUS FNA of the lymh nodes .

Small bowel obstruction with high protein, lymphocyte predominant ascites and pleural effusion with h/o fever and weight loss: 1st differential should be Abdominal TB. Need to go for Ascitic fluid ADA with Pleural fluid R/M and ADA. Mostly will require exploratory laparotomy with resection of any stricture and histopathology of resection specimen will give you the diagnosis and accordingly start therapy

Ascitic fluid cytology and protein content proved no malignancy, on the other side presence of pleural effusion makes the suspiscion of tuberculous origin so we can start conservative treatment and other investigation for tubeculous origin.
