The causes of obstruction are stone in 28 cases(62.79%),urinary tumor in 4 cases(9.30%),urinary tuberculosis in 4 cases(9.30%),neurogenic bladder in 2 cases(4.65%),BPH(belign prostatic hyperplasia) in 2 cases(4.65%), retroperitonal lymphoma, retroperitonal fibrosis, retroperitonal scrofuma in one case respectively and one case of pregnancy were noted(2.33%).
Results:[WT5BZ]The overall positive rate of urinary tuberculosis diagnosed by PCR was 48.8%. The positive rate to diagnose the early and late stage of renal tuberculosis were 63.6% and 40% respectively.
Bacteriological conversion in twenty urinary tuberculosis patients treated with ofloxacin, rifampin and isoniazid: a 10-year fol
Twenty patients with urinary tuberculosis were treated with ofloxacin (200?mg/day, 6?months), rifampin (600?mg/day, 3?months) and isoniazid (300?mg/day, 3?months) between 1989 and 1990.
Bacteriological culture conversion (negativization) was assessed as a clinical guide of efficacy, comparing it, as the only parameter, against a control group (150 patients) with urinary tuberculosis who received conventional therapy.
Clinical relevance of nucleic acid amplification test for patients with urinary tuberculosis during antituberculosis treatment
The nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) has been valuable in the diagnosis of urinary tuberculosis; however, no studies have attempted to determine the significance of NAAT post treatment.
