Abstract

Urine of 6% of 100 consecutive cases of pulmonary tuberculosis was positive for AFB on culture. Most of the genito-urinary tuberculosis cases were in the 15-45 years age-group and 5 out of 6 were males. Pulmonary lesions were cavitary in only one case and the average duration of pulmonary disease was 1-1/2 years. The commonest complaints suggestive of G.U.T. were burning micturition and frequency. Pus cells in acidic and sterile urine were a constant feature in all G.U.T
