Abstract

Urine specimens from patients of pulmonary tuberculosis (100 patients) and osteo-articular tuberculosis (50 patients) were submitted routinely for mycobacterial cultures. 16 patients (10.7%) were found to have positive urine culture for M. tuberculosis. Isotope renography depicted abnormalities of various types in 13 (81.2%) patients, while I.V.P. indicated abnormalities only in 7 (43.7 %) patients. It was evident that isotope renogram is a much better marker to defect renal involvement. In 7 patients (4.6%) a positive urine culture for M. tuberculosis was not anticipated, and in 3 patients isotope renograms and I.V.P. were also normal. Thus normal symptoms or normal tests do not necessarily exclude the possibility of genito-urinary tuberculosis.
