Detection of M. tuberculosis DNA by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and standard technique was compared in 76 new cases of urogenital tuberculosis. In the urinary test PCR confirmed tuberculous etiology of the disease and corresponded to M. tuberculosis detection in 27 (60%) of 45 patients with urinary tuberculosis. M. tuberculosis DNA detection rose significantly in patients with mycobacteriuria (71%) and in examination of aspirates from isolated renal cavern, blocked kidney, epididymis… CONTINUE READING
