OBJECTIVES To evaluate the role of urinary polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTb) in patients with a clinical suspicion of genitourinary tuberculosis (GUTB) and to compare its sensitivity with intravenous urography (IVU), bladder biopsy, and urine culture for acid fast bacilli (AFB). METHODS The study was carried out between September 1997 and December 1998 in 42 patients with a clinical suspicion of GUTB. Their clinical features, organ… CONTINUE READING
