Abstract

Renal tuberculosis is an uncommon manifestation of extrapulmonary tuberculosis, due to its insidious onset and non-specific constitutional symptoms, which makes it difficult to make proper diagnosis[1]. If renal tuberculosis is not treated early, it can disseminate into the genitourinary system resulting into ureteric obstruction, hydronephrosis or pyonephrosis[2]. This is the case of a 31 year old lady with obstructive uropathy from extrapulmonary tuberculosis.
