A total of HO urine samples collected from patients of pulmonary tuberculosis and 100 urine samples from healthy individuals seeded artificially with Mycobacterium tuberculosis Var. hominis (H 37 RV) in different dilutions were studied. A total of 10.9% urine samples were positive for AFB by smear, 6.3 % by culture and 7.2 % on guinea pig inoculation. The culture yield was best in morning samples. Contamination was seen more often in 24 hours’ urine samples. Frequent cultures of urine from the same patient are advisable.
