Genitourinary Tuberculosis

by Ganesh Gopalakrishnan, Sujata Patwardhan

The aim of this book is to focus on the genitourinary tuberculosis. Genitourinary tuberculosis (GUTB) is defined as the infection of the urinary tract or genitalia most commonly caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. This book consists of 9 chapters, which include tuberculosis epidemiology in India, excerpts from guidelines on management of drug-resistant tuberculosis, pathology of tuberculosis in the genitourinary tract, microbiology of Today’s relevance, sonographic features of urinary tuberculosis, surgery outcomes, and outline of medical and surgical management. The 26 cases illustrated provide more than adequate representation on all aspects of GUTB that we frequently encounter. Such a compiling adds considerable value for the book. This book is a must read for all urologists across the globe and even for those countries where GUTB may not be under much consideration.
